Well here it is my idol, my hero, my MOM!!!!! Always dress so elegant!!!
This picture was taken before I was born, she made that outfit (sorry but the scaner is on sick leave).
Here I am in the graduation party !!! of course my mom's fab dress was made by her too!!! can you tell 1970's!!!!
All my childhood I saw my mom on the sewing machine or hand stich dresses, pants etc,, for her and her clients, she also had a couple of show girls that commissioned my mom for stage costumes, also she made outfits for a classical dancer, I was always amaze in how the just described what they wanted and my mom will do a rough sketch, the next time they came it was like magic what they have imagine was there in my moms hands ready for them to enjoy!!!
Now this is a 1/2 family pic my younger brother Peter was not born yet, this is proof that my mamita dress up even for a day in the beach!! always pretty!! always a Lady!! my little bro Tony!! and of course that lucky man!! my Apa (nickname for Dad)!!!
My mom she is why I love to sew, she is the one that gave me such a valuable gift, knowing how to sew, knowing that even do you don't have the monies to spend on nice expensive clothing you can still distinguish yourself from the rest, in my early 20's I made most of my clothing, always had a new dress for any party I was invited to, always had a new shirt or new skirt for work, now I try to make my little girls clothes that only they have, and they are starting to embrace the "Conchita motto" (my mom).
Well I hope that too will find a reason to embrace sewing, for you or others!!!
Always looking to hear your comments or you're stories!!!
