A story about sewing, economizing, recycling, and sharing, this book follows a special party dress that a grandmother makes for her granddaughter, who narrates the story. Each year she alters the dress to accommodate the year’s growth, until the narrator decides she can’t keep her dress forever—and so passes it on to her little cousin.
