While living on the farm with Grandma, it was a big event to purchase feed sacks. We drew straws to see who would get to make the selection. If we needed two different feeds from the mill that week, we might be able to get the same feed sack fabric in the two different feeds....that meant I could have both a blouse and a skirt! Using recently-introduced fabrics, I have replicated the mood I remembered those feeds sacks offered during the 1940's. The name of one of the fabrics I used was "Flour."
