The Dressmaker

Pattern

She was an expert at sewing and made her own dresses.

Raising six children on a very modest income left little to spare for herself.

However, once in a while when she had saved enough, she would treat herself to a few meters of material and a new dress pattern.

Next door to the material shop was an elegant women’s fashion boutique.

Although she dreamed of one day having enough money to buy a dress from this high-end fashion store,

the reality of being a Mother meant that sacrifices had to be made.

And, she wouldn’t have had it any other way.
