We always went to mass on Sunday's and us girls never went an Easter without a new handmade Easter dress.
Mom and I took Stretch-n-Sew class together and she helped me make my prom dress for my Junior prom. The dress was a swimsuit pattern that we converted into a dress pattern.
Mom made every holiday so special. There was always a huge dinner that mom spent days making and gifts out the whazoo. All 6 of us kids, our spouses, grandkids and their spouses and great grandkids have a handmade stocking.
