Sabbath dress made by Dora Levy and her mother from flour sacks in wartime Athens, Greece. Sarina, Dora's mother, dyed the cloth red; Dora Levy cut the fabric and sewed a shirt for her mother and a dress for herself. Dora Levy also embroidered the design on the dress pockets. Because of the shortage of clothing during the civil war in Greece, flour sacks were the only available source of fabric.
