Untitled (flower dress)

This dress was my mother’s first and last attempt to make her own clothes. She made it with the help of her auntie. When we were children we used to wear this when playing dress up. 
Unlike my mother, I love sewing. When I was 21 I cut off the hem and made myself a short summer dress out of what I always thought looked more like a nightgown.
