 “At one time we had thirty new plaid worsted
dresses all cut and basted sent us for the sewing- school. The girls were delighted ; but when they carried them home, the mothers considered them alto- gether too short. It was highly indecorous to have the feet and ankles show below the dress ; so they pieced them out, often with most unsuitable material, putting old cloth with the new, and a cotton frill to a worsted skirt. One woman got new cloth, which she inlaid to wdden and lengthen and enlarge her child’s gown. It looked, when done, like a modern "crazy quilt." It was very odd, but really not ugly.”
