Every so often my mother and I had our big shopping day.
I’m wearing a pink crepe dress which I made in grade 9 in my sewing class. During the war years sewing patterns regulated by war commission, everyone had short dresses, not long, to save fabric
I was wearing bobby socks. Silk for stockings was in short supply because silk was used for parachutes and stockings were a low priority I look at my hair then, I was 15 and I guess I had my first permanent!
