Miss Idaho First Runner-Up wears her (my) glamorous potato sack dress with pride
Kaitlyn as Miss Idaho 1st Runner Up
Miss Idaho Falls Kaitlyn Anderson
has her own personalized potato pride dress.
As she should, being a South-East Idaho native!
This is where potatoes are grown that have the whole country talking...
Famous Idaho Spuds....!!!

Believe it or not, but I made this dress a couple years ago
. I am amazed at how well it is holding up. After all, burlap is not like leather... But Kaitlyn must be taking good care of it.
When I first made this dress....
When I sewed this dress for Kaitlyn Anderson back when she was Miss Russet in Shelly, Idaho, I did not know her measurements, so I just kinda guessed....
We had never even met, so I had no idea whether she was short or tall
or somewhere in between...
I used a vintage sewing pattern, lined it, and added a zipper in the back.
It turned out way too big for her, but she was a good sport and wore it anyway for the photo-shoot with Idaho Falls magazine.

After a few alterations to make the dress perfect for her,
she has worn it numerous times since.
Kaitlyn as Miss Idaho Falls
She went from Miss Russet on to Miss Idaho Falls, then to Miss Idaho Runner Up.
She has been all over the state of Idaho as well as the country. Her aspiration is to make it to Miss America next year!!
Good luck Kaitlyn!
You are representing Idaho well!
Do you think she will wear her potato sack dress?
