Spring Dress for granddaughter

Joey Wolf


Making my girls new dresses. The pattern has a yoke, so I contrasted the yoke material on their dresses, making them 'sister dresses' but not identical. I was complaining about a horrible outfit our Mom bought us for an older brother's wedding. A black & white check suit, pleated skirt, jacket with 3/4 sleeves, large white collar and HUGE red bow. It was hideous, I hated that outfit....my baby sister Susie, said I had no idea what hate was, I only wore it 1 year.....she had to wear hers, mine and our sister Jills!!!
