When I post my video diaries I always get comments about my Laura clothes. No, not my period dresses, but my Laura Ingalls Wilder t-shirts that I wear for travel and Laura trips. I thought everyone might enjoy a closer look at them. So enjoy our monthly series where we look at a Laura shirt.
Shirt of the Month
This month we’re still in cold weather so we’re going to do another sweatshirt. This sweatshirt I got from an online store, but it’s from Mansfield. This is an interesting shirt because most sweatshirts that I’ve seen that have an image its all over the front and this is just a small embroidery about the size of a pocket.
The symbol is stitched in maroon, gold, and black. Laura Ingalls Wilder is embroidered in a handwritten font. Wilder’s name is circled around a book and a fiddle. Home and Museum is across the bottom.
I’m not sure when this one was sold, but it’s a lovely fuzzy white inside. It’s a great one to snuggle up with when The Long Winter is storming outside.
