  1. I have my Mom’s parachute wedding dress. After the war surplus parachutes were sold for .25. My grandmother was a gifted seamstress, & she made the bridal party dresses, having seen a dress (once!) my Mom loved in a store window. Grandma’s treadle machine gave up the ghost before the wedding dress was completed. I can see both the original parachute stitching in places as well as my grandmother’s exquisite hand stitching!
