    What a great refashion! It’s so cool that you have some of your mom’s handsewn stuff, and even cooler that you sew well enough to remake them for yourself.

      Thanks Masha! I’m so glad my mom saved a few of her favorite pieces- I really treasure them!

    It really makes me happy to see this dress again in all its iterations! “A thing of beauty is a joy forever!” And I’m also talking about you! Just beautiful!

    really lovely – both are very dressy and each in their own way. V impressed with your moms dress, my own prom dress was finished by hand and with a few safety pins as i rushed it at the end and sewing machine refused to do any more!

      Thank you! My mom was a great seamstress, it really amazes me that she made this at that age. :)

  4. That is a BEAUTIFUL refashion! I agree that your mom’s 16-year-old sewing skills must have been pretty stellar. My husband grew up near Detroit and that picture of your mom looks so much like the neighborhood he grew up in! Crazy! Thanks for sharing. I really love what you did with this.

      Thanks so much Lisa! I agree, I’m super impressed with my mom’s skill. You should see her wedding dress! Crazy that your husband recognized the background. My mom’s family is from MI- she grew up in a suburb of Detroit, in Dearborn. Small world :)

      • I hope you show her wedding dress someday! I’ve been to Dearborn for the good food and The Material Girls fabric shop. :) He grew up in Wyandotte, so not far away.
