My Mom and Handmade Baby Dress

Last year after my Mom passed away I went through her belongings and helped my Dad sort through what to keep and what to give or throw away.  Well, I found this baby dress that my Grandmother had made for my Mother back in 1932.  So I took it and had it framed so that we could keep it as an heirloom.

Well, recently my brother painstakingly went through hundreds of old photos from my family and our mother's family.  He found this photo of my Mom around age 3 wearing this same dress.  Wow!

My Mom's Baby Dress - Handmade by her mother around 1932

I love being able to keep this little piece of history from our family!


  1. OMG this is amazing!!! I can;t believe your brother found the photo! I can't believe your mother has already been gone a year. I just know she is smiling at her framed dress that probably holds many great memories


    1. Yes Carol, it is truly a treasure! What I would love to do is find a way to enlarge the small photo of her in the dress and have it framed as well. Not sure if that can be done or not.
