The Hawaiian Dress
I remember when I first wore this sweet little Hawaiian dress. I was so excited by the fact that it was long and old. It made me feel very grown up. I was talking to Mom the other day trying to figure out who the dress originally belonged to. She said it was my Nana's but I asked her and she said it wasn't. I showed Nana a picture of it and she said when she was pregnant with my uncle that her mom had sent two Hawaiian dresses, one for her and one for my mom, but she was pretty sure that it looked different. We went upstairs to her room to look through pictures. I had originally wanted a picture of all the girls in my family who'd worn it (me, Alex, Marianne and my mom) but I was unable to find one of my mom in it. We did find a picture of my mom in a different Hawaiian dress but not this one. Now it's a bit of a mystery as to where the dress came from. I can tell by the tag that it's pretty old. So, while I only have a picture of me and Marianne in it, I thought I'd share it anyway. If I do come across photos of anyone else wearing the dress I'll make sure to update.
I think this is the only piece of clothing I have from when I was a girl. I'm happy it happens to be a dress I loved.
Do you have any of your clothes from childhood? Any special pieces you've been able to hand down to your children?
