Fashion Friday

What the young mother and her two little girls wore on Christmas Eve in 1981. This is such a happy picture of all three of them. Norah is looking so cute in her little green dress with a white collar and cuffs plus a smocked insert in the bodice of her dress. Little Miss Molly is wearing what looks to be the same red nightie that big sister wore in an earlier picture, but Grandma could be wrong on that. Regardless, she is happy as can be. Wearing a hot pink sweater and a satinlike blouse, Sherry is her usual pretty self. Note that Uncle Bill has updated the reindeer's antler and has added an ornament for little Molly. In the lower right hand corner, there is a little needlepoint stocking that I made for Norah's first Christmas. That was the only one like that I did, but each girl has a strip pieced stocking that they still hang each year. The year Hannah was born, I scrambled and found some of the same fabric along with some newer pieces and made her one that came out very much like the original ones. (Click to enlarge)
