Blue: What’s that?
Red: It’s a bird … it’s a plane …
Blue: It’s a goddamn drone, that’s what it is.
Red: Hold on, I’ll go get my .22.
This pattern (and many, many others where the the women in the illustration are looking quizzically into the sky, ah the 1940s) is at Oldpatterns.com.
An aside: I’m really, really feeling this particular style of skirt right now. It’s a great combination of length, wearing ease, simplicity of construction, and POCKETS. It doesn’t take much in the way of yardage, either. (Here are a couple more examples.)
Amelia: So you want to oversell it. Try this: “Oh, WOE, WOE, WOE is me!”
Cecelia: And that really works? It seems … undignified.
Amelia: You’d be surprised. I’ve gotten out of two speeding tickets and a school fundraising dinner!
