Today is Veterans' Day 2005 so I'm going to show some photos of my brother dressed in outfits my mother made from my father's Marine uniforms. As I recall, she made a little sailor outfit from his dress whites, and little coveralls from his camouflage fatigues. I may have to dig a little to find extras of the photos, because this album of photographs was given to a nephew.
At an earlier entry I mentioned that Mother made mittens for us. She used the wool from Dad's uniforms to line them. Waste not, want not.
