market needlework

My mom made all of my clothes (except for my Girl Scout uniforms and swim suits). And while I absolutely did not get her abilities for or interest in sewing, I appreciate the art involved.

And maybe that’s why these clothes (which were hanging from a metal panel that had a bit of a makeshift look to it) at a Sicilian market caught my attention. But, really, though, why would anyone overlook that delicate pink and white edging on that sleeve?

  1. My mother made me a swimsuit. But she didn’t know about getting swimsuit elastic. The first time I jumped into the water, the elastic lost its stretchy and my bottoms came down as I came up. Fortunately no one noticed but me.
