Editors Note A story about sewing and sharing, recycling and remembering, this book follows a special party dress a grandmother makes for her granddaughter. When her granddaughter grows taller, new fabric is added. The next year, the dress is ingeniously turned into a sleeveless jumper. Finally, when the little girl turns ten and is ready for a new outfit, she decides to give the dress to her little cousin so it can be her forever dress. Liz Murphy's collage artwork is the perfect medium for this inventive story of sewing and altering, mixing and matching, and the rituals that connect generations.
