To Those Who Went Before Us…

What’s so special about my gown? I made it originally as a personal project from notes taken from a few family portraits. I don’t physically resemble anyone in my family (mostly light hair/blue-eyed) except my Mother…and my Great Aunt Florence.

I was told that I met her as a young child, nothing specific (you know how family stories go- things are held back, forgotten, or whatever). Below is her graduation portrait taken in  1905, my favorite fashion year.

Here are a few more of the dress, taken in front of No. 11 in Tombstone…which, by the way, was built in 1905. 🙂
