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