These clothes are from the families mother's attic - whom sadly passed last year. She had saved these beautiful coats & clothes from the children's childhood years as well as every kilt that their father had brought back from Ireland. There are some amazing details on these clothes that I am really excited about.
I took apart all the quilts and washed them with some special fabric softener. They washed up really really well - a HUGE amount of fabric for me to work with.
I have been dismantling, cleaning, ironing, prepping & cutting this fabric for weeks now. I'm excited that now it is finally time to start sewing!!
