Ella's New Sweater.... from 1975
My mother likes to save things from our childhood in her attic. Some would call it hoarding. Last weekend she ventured up into the attic with my brother to find all of his old baseball card collections. While she was up there she found some of my old baby clothes.
This sweater was mine when I was a baby. I had to remind Sydney that, yes they had sweaters in the "olden days." After a wash with Dreft, the sweater lost the "I have been in the attic for 37 years smell." The sweater even has all of the buttons. It is actually pretty cute!
My next task is to find an outfit in Ella's closet to pair with this sweater or maybe even splurge by heading to the consignment shop for a "new" dress. You can read about my favorite shop in this blog post. I wonder what other treasures I can find up in my mother's attic, well, that is for another blog post!
