My favourite garment was a dress. I was probably about 7/8 years old. It was a summer dress with no sleeves, from what I can remember. But what I liked about the dress was the material. It was made of white cotton, very much like a tana lawn. Printed on it were spots, probably about ½” in size. The spots were various pale colours being pink, blue, and possibly some others but I can’t remember. I loved the dress.
Sadly, it met an end when we were burgled and they used my dress with the pinking shears to break the front door open to escape.
Looking back, it was probably the material and colours used that drew me to the dress, rather than the style perhaps.
