What To Do With Heirloom Clothes/Fabric

Flora is my brothers’ grandmother. I never met her but I knew her clothes because I could play dress up in them when I was a girl, because Flora was a tiny woman. She also dressed fabulously. There was one robe everyone in my family loved. When I started transforming my maternity clothes  I began looking at all clothes as opportunities. When I looked at Flora’s robe I realized none of us were ever going to wear it. Too small! But what if there was a way to give a piece of her robe to everyone on the family? I made myself a headscarf.

Elro got a bonnet.

All of these items feel extra special because we’re all able to have a piece of the robe. It’s kind of magical and I highly recommend it!
