This is the last photo in the interesting dresses series. I purchased this photo in The Tin Ceiling Antique Shop in Park Rapids Minnesota.
I call this one gingham granny. Her dress is reminiscent of years gone by..buttons, long sleeves and a tiny waist. I wonder if the dress was cut too short and the bottom part was added or if it is part of the design.
I have a dress in the museum that has a bottom hem that can be removed for washing or repairs. I read because men spit in the streets that many women sewed extra hems on their dresses.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
