Among her things they found a trunk with 3 handmade blessing dresses. Aunt Karen took them to Museum Quality Gown Care in Scottsdale and they were able to clean the dresses up and restore them.
This was my Mom's dress. It was hand stitched with French seams, embroidered flowers and a crocheted edging.
The dress is about 82 years old.This was Aunt Ella Mae's dress, it is about 84 years old.
Aunt Karen's was done in Pink. Hers is about 68 years old.
During the presentation of the dresses there were very few dry eyes in the room. Having something hand made by our grandmother for our Mothers is such a special gift.They also found this dress Grandma crocheted for Aunt Karen. The stitch is one I don't think I have ever done before.
THANK YOU AUNT KAREN FOR HAVING THESE PRECIOUS PIECES OF OUR HISTORY RESTORED.
