Cautionary Tale

Be careful when making pencil skirts not to make them too tight, or your head will correspondingly expand.
Penciled notes on the envelope read: Dec 1960, White fur-Carol. E-skirt 6/89- material left from folding seat covers.

Maybe it's just me, but I'm not feeling the folding seat cover fabric idea.
Pattern found here, if you have a better idea.

One hopes that she was planning on making this for Someone Else... or the thought of matching jacket and folding seats is a bit disturbing. Perhaps she was going for some sort of camouflage effect, hoping for some unknown purpose to blend in to the living room during the dreaded Afternoon Bridge Party.

"Ethel? Why, she was just here a minute ago! I can't imagine what's happened to her... and she was supposed to be bringing the olive puffs from the kitchen, too."

Interesting technical drawings. But I agree, somehow "seat covers" and "skirt" don't work as coordinates.

Since I don't have your email address, I'll just post here to say I nominated you for a Beautiful Blogger Award. I know, I know... sort of trite. But there you go. Consider yourself officially beautiful.

LOL Nothing like a gracious nomination, right? Hmmm... I guess I'd better inform the other nominees, huh?

Oooo, my word verification is "hirept" which is totally useful in describing how inept my employers are at hiring new staff. Awesome.
