"produce," "make" and "create" -- 2
1. My mother produced a dress for me last week.
2. My mother made a dress for me last week.
3. My mother created a dress for me last week.
Only #2 sounds good, doesn't it?

You could use "made" or "sewed", but not "produced" or "created". The verb produce works well with factories, or wherever they make clothes.

I wouldn't use "create" here. I'm not saying you won't find "create" used in this context at all - ever. The most unpredictable thing about language, I would say, at least in English, is how vocabulary is used. It's very infrequent, but every now and then I hear a native speaker of English say something and I think to myself "if an ELL asked me if they could say that, I'd probably say no, and then follow with some type of an explanation. But someone just said this, and I can't say that it's wrong.".
Also, it's hard to think of all possibilities at any one given moment.
