A dress I love

my mom dress

I always loved the dresses with ruffles that sent back to a Spanish style.

So, one day, my mother (which as you know had a tailor workshop) and I  started to look for a suitable material until we found this wonderful pink silk with black dots.

She had already started working on this dress when, unfortunately, has been hit by a TIA (transient ischemic attack) that caused her to stay in hospital for a period of time.

Everything is then solved for the better, life has taken its course and, in the meantime, my dress had remained just as my mother had left it.

Years have passed, my nieces and nephew were born that my mother was devoted body and soul, joys and sorrows have taken place and my dress remained there forgotten like a hidden treasure.

When my mother unfortunately passed away of pancreatic cancer that has granted only one month old, I found myself snooping through her things to rearrange them. In the darkness of that time I was fortunate to find that unfinished dress, a dress that brought me back in time and tied me to her.

I went to Luigina, my seamstress friend, and, in part by changing the original model, we have created the dress in the photos.

As you can imagine, this dress for me is invaluable …. I love you mom.

 

I’ve always loved dresses with ruffles that remind of a Spanish style.

About me

She had already started working on this dress when, unfortunately, has been affected by a TIA (transient ischemic attack) that caused her to stay in hospital for a period of time.

At the end, everything turned out well, life has taken its course and, in the meantime, my dress had remained just as my mother had left it.

Years have passed, my nieces and nephew arrived in our life and my mother gave her heart and soul to the family; joys and sorrows have taken place and my dress remained there forgotten like a hidden treasure.

When my mother unfortunately passed away of pancreatic cancer that gave her only one month to live, I found myself snooping through her things to tidy up. In the darkness of that moment I was fortunate to find that unfinished dress, a dress that brought me back in time and connected me with her.

I went to Luigina, my seamstress friend (see below the previous post), and, in part by changing the original model, we have created the dress you see in the photos.

Luigina, the best and unstoppable 80-year-old tailor

As you can imagine, this dress for me is invaluable …. I love you mom.
