About two years ago, I was invited to rummage through my husband's grandmother's fabric stash. Granny was an avid quilter and lover of all things antique, and her fabric collection reflected these passions. After hours of sorting, I came away with three garbage bags full of vintage fabric, most of it beautiful feedsacks sewn out of necessity during the 1930s. Granny had obviously found several of these pieces while out "junkin" as many still had handwritten price tags on them!
Known in her younger days as "Bitsy," Betty McCollough Lord had an eye for all things vintage and pretty. We shared a kindred collector's spirit and when I found this treasure-trove of vintage flour sacks stacked in a window seat at her house, I knew exactly what they needed to become. After much soaking, ironing, and stitching, I am pleased to present this Southern Chic's exclusive, one-of-a-kind collection for girls.
My hope is that these heirloom quality dresses become beloved items for mothers to give and daughters to wear. May you share Granny's love of all things old and beautiful, and may this dress make you feel special and loved.
A note on sizing: Bitsy Dresses are size 2-4 (approximately 21" in length) and Betty Dresses are size 4-6 (approximately 24" in length). Your child should be able to get a couple of years worth of wear out of each size.
