Sanforetta McKee dress

The creator of this dress, Sanforetta Tudor, was born in Burlington in 1890 and married William McKee on September 29, 1917. The couple had two daughters, Ina and Wilma, and lived in the Flamborough area until 1924 when they moved to Dundas. During the Depression, Sanforetta began making clothes for her family and eventually bought a loom in 1940.

Sanforetta made this dress sometime in the 1950s and it is a lovely example of women’s fashion from that time.
