I made all our dresses here, indeed all those I wear in these
photographs after 1953. The silk of the wedding dress I later used
to line pants I made for Richard, Colin and Jonathan out of yellow
corduroy when I took them to Europe to visit their relatives
there. We received no child support. My graduation gown is my
aunt's, that I remade into my doctor's robes, and which we had
also loaned to Hal for his graduation. I gave my academic regalia
to our grandchildren so that all these generations could use them,
placing them in the chests I made for them when I entered the
convent at 55.
