A Special Present






My mother in law gave me this dressing gown - it was handmade by her own mother during the war.
She had to save up fabric coupons to be able to buy the only fabric that was available - curtain fabric - and she hand stitched this so she would have a dressing gown to wear on her honeymoon. It's a very special keepsake!

What a lovely story and a great keepsake. It's beautiful - more so because it's your heritage.

What a treasure. I love the button detail.
