Did anyone else have homemade cloths as a kid?

Posted by   + Show Post


The clothes are home made complete with bloomers! This picture was taken in 1998.

I did. The women in my family are all beautiful seamstresses. My mother made all sorts of business suits for herself and she made my prom dresses. They didn't look homemade though. Everyone thought I had my dress designed for me and bugged me for the contact info lol.

Only for special occasions.

I do buy my girls handmade dresses and all three children have handmade Halloween costumes. Love to learn how to sew.

Yep, I had quite a few, as did my siblings. My mom has some pretty good sewing skills though. She made my wedding dress and then made my sister's dress later that same year.

OMG... 1998??? No way you dressed like that then... I remember 1998!! LOL... My kids wear home made clothes but now they are called customs... :) They look nothing like that though... I buy them from people who make them at home...

You bet. My sister and I thought it was terrific!  Whenever we wanted a new skirt in the latest style Mom would just whip one out.

As a child yes. My grandma was a seamstress and great grandma was a milliner.

My grandma made dress up clothes for me. I'm sure she made some of my baby clothes too. I don't ever remember wearing actual clothes that anyone made.

Yes my mom made clothes for us until I learned to sew. My alteration skills surpassed her's before I was out of high school thanks to bring overly top heavy. I make clothes for my children and all of them love the clothes. I am currently teaching my dd how to sew starting with some night gowns.
