Aunt Emily

Emily Bowyer Hammel was my father's older sister. She was the dearest person I've ever known. Over several adolescent summers, she patiently taught me how to sew and how to cook. I loved her. Sadly, she has been gone these few years and I miss her very much. However, I am carrying on her legacy of sewing and trying to carry on her legacy of caring.

Monday, July 20

Here's something funny - my friend Paula in England says that the sunsuit from the pattern featured on Saturday is the second thing she ever made in sewing in grammer school, about 1950 or 1951! Small world, etc. Will have to see if she can give me some pointers.

So in the spirit of more children's vintage patterns, there is this small girls dress. The envelope is battered and the number is missing, but it is a McCalls pattern in 6 month size. Perfect for embrodiery or trim on the yoke, or some smocking?
