I have a vague memory of an AWMOK submission (or several!) featuring matching family outfits. My Mom did a lot of sewing when I was a kid (she made her own prom dress and wedding dress too!) and I clearly remember wearing the matching outfits she made for herself and me. For Mom it was a sleeveless dress with a sash and for me, a long shirt and solid color coordinated pants. Pretty kitschy. Here is one such outfit. I honestly remember wearing this exact one. I’m not sure if I should share this photo since it’s pretty much proof that I’m the bad seed…..Have you ever seen a kid that is so obviously plotting evil?!?! Scary!!
Yep, Bad Seed.
Here is the prom dress my mother made for herself. I am infinitely more happy about wearing this outfit. I also remember this dress very clearly…It was the perfect color of pink satin. Once I realized this dress existed, my only desire was to get to it, put it on, and never take it off. That would be a Great Grandmother’s Rosary on my head. I regularly got in trouble for wearing it like that….but it was just so fancy and glamorous…who could resist? It also gave me a fabulous flip-do…coincidence? I think not!
