"As soon as Ann Cole Lowe could walk, her momma and grandma taught her to sew. When her mom died, Ann continued sewing dresses. It wasn't easy, especially when she went to design school and had to learn alone, segregated from the rest of the class. But the work she did set her spirit soaring, as evidenced in the clothes she made. Rarely credited, Ann Cole Lowe became 'society's best kept secret. 'This ... picture book shines the spotlight on a figure who proved that with hard work and passion, any obstacles can be overcome"--Provided by publisher.
