Another Family in Fabric Page

I finished this Family in Fabric yesterday.  The photo was taken on Easter 1970.  I was home for the weekend from my very first teaching job in Northern AZ.  I made my suit from the fabric above.  The skirt was plaid and the jacket was a matching solid yellow.  My sister made her dress from the pattern above and my Mom made my little sister's dress. 

My sister still had her pattern and let me borrow it.  A few month's ago my DH was organizing his shop out back and came in with a few pieces of fabric.  He said they had been in my Dad' camper which we sold a few years ago.  The pile of fabric included some old curtains, a sheet, and my fabric.  Don't know why my Dad had put them in his camper but I'm glad to have the actual fabric to use on my Family in Fabric page. 

 This is my fifth completed page.  Links to the other pages are here, here, here, and here.

Pam, you've done a wonderful job with these. I looked up all the links to see your other pages. I liked them all and thought the cousins one was really cute. You are very creative. Have a great week! Twyla

What lovely memories and what a happy page you made! I am in love with that dress pattern! I wonder if it could still be found? It's funny that every old pattern I find from the 1960's seem to be a size 10. I wonder, was everyone a size 10 back then?

Wonderful composition and I'm sure great memories too. I owned that same flower brooch in the right hand corner but mine was gray and black. Wish I still had it.
Putting together family pages is a great idea and will make such a memorable keepsake for generations after.
