"I was born in 1951. For the first four-five years of my life, all my dresses were sewn by my paternal gradnmother from feedsacks. she would layer the faabric two to three layers deep and cut the main dresses fromt he same pattern. She would then add different details to each dress. Some sleeveless, some with little puffy fifties sleeves, some with self collars some with contrasting solid collars. We lived in rural north GA, but none-the-less I was teased by my parents friends about my feed-sack dresses. Oh how I longed for storebought dresses. Now, oh how I long to have some of those wonderful littel feedsack dresses! They weren't thought of as precious at all, so no one ever thought to keep them!"
