Jess: Grandma Carma Denice lived in muumuus! Almost every memory I have of her is seeing her in a big floral gown. Memories of her flipping pancakes in the kitchen, to scolding my brothers for climbing on the roof. She was always in her muumuu. 2 years ago, after she passed away, I was able to bring home one of her priceless dresses. After wearing it day and night, I knew we needed to re-create this! Nuumuus are the modern day muumuu. Although this is #notyourgrandmasmuumuu, I hope that it's a piece that will be lived in and create lots of memories with those you love.
Meg: Grandma Ramona grew up in the Bear Lake Valley during the Great Depression. She learned at an early age to make due with very little. She grew up in dresses made from gunny sacks. They were itchy and ugly, and other children made fun of her. She was determined that her children would have nice things to wear. She became a master seamstress and would create the most beautiful dresses for my mother and her sister on every holiday! She was my inspiration when I began sewing for my daughter. Even today, after each new creation, I swear I can hear her clap her hands and say, "My word! Would you look at that!"
