"I was born in 1940, the oldest of seven children (five of whom were girls). My Aunt Dorothy made all us girls dresses from colorful printed feedsacks, and we were very lucky to have them! We had ruffles, ties and puffed sleeves, and of course, these all had to be sprinkled, rolled and then the bushel basket of ironing had to be ironed!! I can remember when as a young adult "perma-press " clothing came into being, and I thought it was a gift from Heaven - NO MORE IRONING!!"
