Here’s this week’s Flashback Friday:
I know you’ve all been wondering where I got my impecible sense of fashion from. Well ladies, wonder no more. The little pouter above is my mom when she was 18. If you knew my sister Ada you might think it was her, eh? Wasn’t she so cute? Ever since I thought up the idea of Flashback Friday, I’ve been begging her for these pictures. She sewed this red jumpsuit, and I think she actually liked it more than she’s showing in the picture.
Apparently I also got my lack of moderation from my mom. When she wasn’t wearing form fitting jumpsuits, she liked to swing to the other end of the spectrum and sport what I mistakenly called a “moo moo”. She corrected me and said it was a “kaftan”. Either way, between the outfit and the wallpaper, I think I’m getting dizzy. She sewed the kaftan too. Doesn’t it look like it would be heavy to wear? She said it took about 5.5 yards of fabric to make, and that it really was super heavy! She said to make these they would take a big rectangle and cut a hole in the middle for the head, and sew the side seams up to the arms to leave holes for sleeves. Maybe we should start a new trend, huh ladies?
Thanks for the pictures Mom! You’re even cuter now than you were then!
