Big Mamma’s Jacket – LOTD 7/22/2011

LOTD 7-22-2011
This look was inspired by the lovely jacket from d. Select that reminds me of one of my treasured possessions is an old quilted jacket. I was lucky to have known my great-grandparents, and even luckier to have two of my great-grandparents still alive and well into advanced age. Anyway, my great-grandmother, whom we lovely called Big Mamma, was a seamstress at times. She had this tradition that she handmade a quilt each time a grandchild got married. She passed away before I received my quilt. My grandmother, who was tasked with clearing out my Big Mamma’s belongings, beckoned me to come over to her home to pick up something. She handed me a suit covering and said to keep this to remember Big Mama by. I opened it and inside was a beautiful handmade jacket that my Big Mamma made during her younger years. Although I haven’t been able to wear the jacket because of the disappearance of winter in my parts, I cherish that jacket and hope to pass it down to my kids one day.
