Brothers in Dresses Photo

I didn’t share this photo yesterday on my post. But I did share it on Facebook and Instagram. I need to explain why my brothers were wearing these checked dresses. My Mama was a seamstress and sewed lots of things in her lifetime. She sewed for all her immediate family. She made all of our clothes (except the boys jeans). My brothers shirts and our dresses were made all by our Mama.

Anyway, back to the story of why my brothers were wearing dresses. My Mama decided that she wanted to make dresses for her three nieces that lived in California at the time. She found out their dress sizes and needed models for them. I bet it was Dean’s idea to have their picture taken in them. He looks the orneriest. 🙂 What do you think? I would love to see a picture of my cousins in these dresses some day. Kathy, Jeanine, and Roxanne; where’s your photo? I hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday.


  1. I remember being at your mom and dads house most summers. She did do a bunch of sewing. She was so good at it too. I always wanted to be just like her. She made a couple of dresses for me which I always loved. I do have a dress that she made me when I was maybe 3 years old. I still have it in the cedar chest. I remember anytime I stayed with your family I always cried when it was time to leave. Miss my ant Toots very much.

  2. Awww. It’s good to know that you had a great time at our house. Mom loved having her nieces and nephews come and stay with her. She just loved her family. I’m assuming this is Sue? Love you!
