Once upon a time, I made my own clothes, as many of us did. Sidey‘s themes have a knack of creating unexpected associations. I love reading everyone’s take on the subjects. This week it is “Simplicity”.
How many of you remember this was the name of a well-known brand of paper dress-making pattern? They still exist – this is from the current website, my own pattern collection long ago disappeared in one of the clear-outs.
And, this is the nearest look-alike to a dress I made when I was sixteen . Mine had a V-neck front and back, and like this, was red.
My Dad said “You are not going out in that!”
But I went anyway.
Being loved, looked after. Learning how to do things.
