I like looking at these and remembering the dresses and blouses and other things Mom had sewed me.
There are a couple from "the bathing suit". Let me tell you about the bathing suit keeping in mind that this is the story as clearly as I remember it, meaning there could be some variance but honest, I'm not exaggerating. At least not to my mind.
When I was about 5 or 6, Mom made me a one-piece bathing suit. I soon outgrew it so she cut in in half making it a two piece. I was able to wear it that way for a few more years. Eventually, instead of growing straight up, I began to fill out a little so she split the sides and the back and added some rivets and laces allowing me to wear it for several more years. I think I wore that bathing suit until I finally got a new one from the Sears catalogue when I was 14! My Mom has always been both resourceful and creative. I still remember that bathing suit fondly and I'm glad there are some scraps to add to a quilt.
