Fortunately it's tea length.

my home town has a VERY extensive museum.  I may see if they want it.

All righty.  Lemme know what they say.  :-)

Dee I would see if you can take that dress to someone that is a professional dressmaker and see if there is a way they can "remake" it for your daughter. My wedding dress has quite the big skirt and a train. My daughter can't wear it because she is quite busty and I am not............that said there is plenty of fabric in that dress to make her an incredible wedding dress of her own. She wants more of mermaid style so I think we can just use it for fabric and she can have a beautiful dress.................at least we are talking about it. She is engaged and will be getting married in less than two years.

They all look cute, except why are they slouching so much?!

A bunch of old sewing patterns for CLOTHING, 99% of which have never been used. 

I already got rid of those.  I've been going through my fabric deciding what I like and might actually use and donating some to the church quilt group and a friend who does lots of Linus quilts.  It's about time to go through my quilt patterns again to get realistic about what I will actually make.

It would do our kids good to ponder the fact that we (the parents) were young once and may have looked much, much cooler than we do now.   We even had Interesting Lives before they arrived.   :-)

So true.  I even wore hot pants in the 70's.  We were fortunate not to have to deal with man of the things the youth of today are dealing with.  I pray for my grandkids daily and their parents.

I wish that I had saved the fabric  scraps, my mother was at least a size 10 and I was a 2, so when it was altered there had to be a bunch of fabric cut away.  We could use that to remake the neckline.  Oh well.  I'm not sure she would even want to wear it, I guess I'll ask her.  Though she's pretty negative on ever getting married at this point.  She turned 30 yesterday.

I once disassembled a Gunne Sax skirt to salvage the fabric.  I felt like Attila the Hun.  LOL!

Hot pants?!  Did you say "hot pants"?  stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes

Here I am in May, 1971, wearing a hot pants outfit and a straight hair wig, both items purchased at the BX prior to a party at Wurtsmith AFB. Our son (age 3) got tears in his eyes when he saw my "hair hat" and I had to take it off and reveal my curly brighter red hair to reassure him that his real mommy was still there under the wig.

The only way I could have fashionable straight hair was to wear a wig ....
