The clothes are home made complete with bloomers! This picture was taken in 1998.
We did but mom made nice looking clothes. Suede skirts for example ... wish I had a picture. She even made me a rather nice outfit for my reception.
Yep. My mom made most of my clothes when I was growing up because I was very skinny and short and we had a tough time finding store bought clothes that fit. Later my mom continued making my clothes because it was less expensive to make them then buy them.
This a picture of one of the last dresses she made for me. we simply don't live close enough anymore for her to sew for me. Sorry I don't have a better picture of it right now. Most of my photos are packed away in storage right now. We recently moved cross country and with living in a small apartment, we don't have everything unpacked. I'm lucky I could find this one. LOL... Since I got married 25 years ago I also don't have all my photos on the computer either.
I turned 21 in 1998...
