This dress was sewn by my mommy's great-grandmother (Mama Blanche) for her paternal grandmother (Mama Peggy)-- smocking done by Mama Peggy's aunt. It's in AMAZING shape! Everyone raves about how the blue "brings out my big blue eyes,"whatever that means. I just had fun clip-clopping in my dress shoes at this art museum type place. They didn't get me to stay still for long!
