Sewing By Hand

In Fleta's share site,  I found this picture of Helen in the dress I recall Momma working on sitting out in yard in a swing.  Mine dress was similar but wad dark blue with navy.  Fleta's was lighter blue.  Momma made button holes by hand and I can see them on Helen's dress.  I would guess Helen was in the 5th grade, as I think I was in the 9th or 10 when she made these.  She invented the stand up collar.  She had no pattern.  She just cut them out.  Thank you, Momma, for making us all such a pretty dress.
