Theddddd-thdddddd-tddd. Stop and straighten. Mother in the corner making a turtle neck black dress with a slender waistline, a replica of Dior’s design for her teenage daughter.

1982

Snip, snip, snip. Turn the pattern. Me in the corner cutting out the pattern for the schools Christmas fete. 

Thedddddd- thddddd-tddd. Stop and straighten. Four new staff members in the corner sewing away under grandma’s watchful gaze.

Mother in the front room taking new styles and orders.

Father by the bales of cotton pitching perfect materials.
