Black History Month

On this last day of February, I wanted to post about a seamstress who did not get her proper acknowledgement at the proper time.

Ann Cole Lowe (December 14, 1898 – February 25, 1981) was an American fashion designer and the first African American to become a noted fashion designer.[1] Lowe's one-of-a-kind designs were a favorite among high society matrons from the 1920s to the 1960s. She was best known for designing the ivory silk taffeta wedding dress worn by Jacqueline Bouvier when she married John F. Kennedy in 1953.

I was pleasantly surprised to find these items at JoAnn’s

Happy Sewing!!!!
