Hannah & Lydia

My daughter, Hannah, found a sweet fabric in her late-grandmother’s fabric collection.  It is printed two-sided with white flowers on one side and stripes on the other, and was woven at the Wamsutta Mills in New Bedford, Massachusetts.  We’re guessing it was purchased in the spring of 1973.  Hannah used Vogue 8723 for her sundress.  The skirt is a-line, and the bodice is fully lined using the fabric’s striped side.
