This dress is shown on my Grandmother on another post she was about 15 at time 1915 was the year . I took it out of trunk today a bit wrinkled but still still lovely . Mostly hand made , All the girls in the family of 12 children had a white dress like this . It was their Sunday dress and made by my Great Grandmother . I have posted me wearing it for a special day a few years ago . It was a perfect fit nearly shoulders slipped but I know she was pleased I choose that dress for the day and not a new store made one .

    Thank You walksoft(David) My cousin had kept it in Canada until about 1995 when she brought it here on a visit she made . It had been stored in Ardath all those years she was a keeper of other wise lost items . So it has been from here to next to you and back home :-)

    It's so nice to see"this was handed down from my Grandmother" with out the question "does anyone know what it is worth?" following it !
    Thanks Mani for helping me keep the faith !!

    Scandi since I have it I have keep it in her cedar hope chest she got when she married my Grandfather . No holes but a bit wrinkled . Thank you for love XX

    Thanks Hedge . I know what ya mean :-) there is not a price on everything and unless I find the hope diamond this is priceless to me and needs no monetary value . Family history and family heirlooms are just that . It doesn't matter how much money it is worth . I am the caretaker of it for my time here :-)
