In yesterday's post I told you what an excellent seamstress my mother-in-law (aka Grandma Daisy) was. She began sewing when she was a girl, and continued, on to age 81, making clothing for her five children and later, the fifteen grandchildren.
My girls were in high school and junior high when she made these pantsuits for them. The blue ones were made out of denim and the tan was some sort of polished twill (?). The embroidery was all done by hand; what machine could match that? Imagine the time it must have taken. They all seem to be a southwestern design. Wouldn't the little tan one be wonderful hanging in a home with southwestern decor?
I'm keeping them tucked away, hoping some day the girls will take them and treasure them as some of the more special things Grandma Daisy made for them.
