Throw back Thursday – A ‘historical’ blast from the past

Me with friend Missy. 

I believe this was in 1994 because my daughter Josephine is hiding under my long skirt.

Missy and I are dressed to be part of our friends’, Colleen and Brad, Wedding.

I remade my gown into my quilted Christmas tree skirt.  I get to see it once a year and think of my friends and my daughter (as I quilted it while pregnant with her – and she passed away, while an infant.  In fact… she would have been 22 today!  Happy Birthday my little angel-girl!)

Ms. Colleen posted this picture on her facebook page.  How fortuitous! I guess my interest in historical clothing goes back longer than I thought.  And, as I am thinking about it… Momma made me a dress for snowball back in high school that would be a nod to past fashion.  I will have to locate that photo as well.
