Mary Hoyer loved Saturday trips to Lavine Fabrics at 7th and Penn in Reading. This is a creation made from the Mary Hoyer collection of fabrics originally purchased as a large bolt to make a bedspread and bolster pillow for her bedroom. I was just 8 on that Saturday trip to the fabric store and remember selecting this fabric with Nana. The fabric came in a bittersweet orange or this dusty blue. It was decided the dusty blue would be perfect in Mary's pale lavender bedroom. Finding a large piece of this fabric in my grandmothers collection I decided it would be a lovely Mother's Day dress and remind me of that fun shopping day with Nana. My Mother would love this symplistic style and "fancy cut" on the bodice.
