"I was born in 1941 & lived on an IL farm. Many of my dresses were made from feed sacks. But, my greatest memory was of my friends who were identical twins. Their mother would make them identical dresses that were simply straight pieces of fabric with an elastic casing for the waistline. The sides would be stitched together with bottoms and tops hemmed and openings for their arms (which were turned under and stitched, of course). She didn't like to sew but their dresses were always pressed and I can't recall anyone laughing at them. They might have been embarrassed but nobody was kinder or sweeter than these two girls."
