What We Wore
As daughter #3 of 4, I spent many of my elementary school years wearing hand-me-downs from my older sisters. My mom, being very handy with a sewing machine, also added several inches of cotton fabric to the bottom of pants legs so we could wear them longer. My absolute favorite pair of jeans had ruffle of Holly Hobbie fabric and my second favorite had a fabric ruffle with a Budweiser Beer print. Yes, really. My oldest sister always got the new clothes and I remember that being a source of envy for me. A family of six must have been quite a challenge to keep clothed. I learned from my mom to never buy anything unless it's on sale and to shop garage sales and secondhand stores for great deals. Those early lessons of frugality have stayed with me my entire life. I still shop the sale racks at stores and love going garage-saling, although I haven't worn Holly Hobbie jeans in several decades. What was your favorite childhood clothing item?
