there was a wonderful Mother & Grandmother that could sew beautifully, taking the smallest or oldest piece of fabric & creating breathtaking fashions & quilts from them. They were always making beautiful things for we girls to wear.
This Mother had 4 daughters whom she taught how to sew, crochet, knit, etc. The eldest daughter, try as she might, was a terrible student ... & did not have that great of an interest either ... but she did try.
Even in home ec. class this daughter sewed the assigned project dress, aprons, pot holders & so on. Struggle as she might, she did get the projects completed with reasonable grades.
Then the daughter grew up, got married, became blessed with her first pregnancy & decided she was going to save a TON OF $$$$$ for her darling sailor DH. She bought all this wonderful fabric, lovely maternity smock patterns ... then settled into pinning & cutting these fabrics that were going to become 'designer' fashions.
Pretty proud of herself when she got that first gorgeous smock done ... she was! THEN Mother came home on her lunch hour, took one look at the exquisite creation & started yelling 'MARY DONELDA!!!! GET THE RIPPER!!!!!!!!!!!'
Whhhhhaaaaaaatttttttttt!?!?!? Well, if ? I tell you the sleeves ? were in on the wrong sides, the front ? & back ? were sewn in reverse, it was hemmed ? too short, I wondered what those facings ? were for .......
I SEW am not a seamtress ...
The End! Have a beautiful & blessed day. Hugs, TTFN ~ Marydon
