Text Box: Maria’s Dress Shop

Custom tailored fashions allow a woman to select both the fabrics and the styles that she finds most appealing. After choosing fabrics and patterns, Branice engaged Maria to tailor many skirts, blouses, dresses and suits.
The weeks of anticipation would finally end as Branice entered Maria’s shop to pick up her new fashion. She would feel her heart begin to race as she spied each new creation hanging on the rack.  Then Branice would draw forth and hand to Maria the generous gift of money that Mother and Daddy had given her. Maria always beamed her broad smile as she clutched the money. Delighted with her new purchase, Branice excitedly took her new fashion and anxiously awaited an occasion to wear it.
