By Janette Fuller on March 17, 2010
Format: Hardcover
This book really helps me turn back the years. I remember how my mother would always be sewing clothes for my sisters and I. When I was about ten-years-old, I started taking sewing classes in our local 4-H club. I sewed all during my high school years and made dozens of outfits.

"My Forever Dress", by Harriet Ziefert, is about a six-year-old girl and her grandmother. Grandma loves to sew and delights in making dresses for her granddaughter. The book shows the girl picking out the fabric and helping her Grandma with each step of sewing her dress.

When the girl turns seven, Grandma talks to the girl about saving the earth. She said we should only buy new fabric if we have to. Grandma makes some pink leggings so the girl can wear the short dress from last year and make it look new again. Each year Grandma uses the dress from the year before to make a new outfit.

I love the mixed-media collage illustrations by Liz Murphy. She uses sewing pattern pieces, fabric, measuring tapes, patterned paper, buttons, etc. to make this story come alive.

I think elementary children will find this book interesting and entertaining. It is a wonderful introduction to sewing and it also has a strong message about recycling and reusing.

My daughters love this book. I am pretty sure they have it memorized by now. Their favorite dresses become tunics and then shirts as they grow and they now call them "forever dresses". The illustrations are beautiful and the story is one with enough depth that the older kids will like it, but is still attainable to the younger set. I love this book so much I have gifted it numerous times.

Why must everything be political and politically correct? I was hoping for something inspiring that two different generations could share and hold dear for the rest of their lives, not so.Very tired of the impending gloom and doom undertones even in childrens books. How sad!

I got it fast and was just what I wanted art a good price.Only thing about this review is that they need so many words to submit a review! I think this part is weird! So that should be enough now.

Bought this book for my 5 yr. old granddaughter, who picked out fabrics for 3 "Forever Dresses" from my stash. Loved sharing this with her!
