Sewing All-nighter

Last night I pulled what I call a "mother". My mom was an accomplished seamstress and was obsessed with beautiful fabric and a love for sewing. I am so happy that I inherited that gene from her. I have 3 sisters and mom used to make a lot of our clothes, especially those for special occasions. I can remember waking up in the middle of the night and hearing mom's Singer humming while she worked in the wee hours of the morning. Looking back on it that was the only time that she didn't have 4 girls, all within 6 years of each other, tugging at her skirt for one thing or another. This picture is one of my favorites of Easter dresses that mom made. I am 3 and my sister is 5.  The skirts were red with a pussy willow design, the bodices were a soft grey and the moss green sash at the waist tied all of it together. So adorable...
