I love this dress - I've never seen another one like it. I've worn it through so many lifetimes, under so many "identities" in my life. I've worn it to work, to festivals, on dates (I always get complimented on it), I've worn it the day I broke up with a boyfriend 10 years ago. It makes me feel young, at any age. I haven't worn it for ages until today because it needed a button putting back on. It has holes in two places that I need to mend. Maybe my daughter will wear it? Or maybe more pieces of it will turn up in another quilt?
