Grandmother's Choice - Block no. 12 - Little Boys Breeches - Dress Reform

Hand Pieced

My grandmother never wore pants...never.  In the first 2 decades of my life, pants were not allowed in school or church or any kind of social events.  I did wear pants and shorts and what we called peddle pushers for play.  So different today.  I don't think I've worn a skirt for a long time.  Can you imagine being confined in movement with a skirt all day.

Grandma, as I said, never wore anything but a dress.  She cleaned in a dress, did laundry in a dress, sewed in a dress, knit in a dress, shopped in a dress, went for walks in a dress, killed chickens in a dress...the list goes on.  We have come a long way...but don't we still wear high heals?   I stopped wearing them and my feet and whole body are the better for it.

  1. You have perfectly described my Grandmother and myself. Yes, such changes we have seen, but nothing like our grandparents generation.


Would love to hear your comments.
