Today's Pattern Story

Simplicity 1912

Darla: "Oh. You're right. I do look like a walking café curtain."

Carla: "I hated to be the one to tell you, but someone had to do it."

Darla: "And you know …"

Carla: "That I look like I'm about to call "offsides!" at the World Tea-Drinking Championship? Yep."

Darla: "Our home-ec teacher has a lot to answer for."

Carla: "Don't worry, I already spiked the faculty coffeepot with something that causes unpleasant gastrointestinal effects, yet is non-life-threatening."

Darla: "You rock. Also, cute shoes!"

  1. Poor choice of fabric and trim, but the dress itself has potential. Id maybe do it in burgundy, and lose the ruffle. Nobody needs a ruffle at crotch level. I think Id do a strip of flat bias trim.


  2. I have to agree that no one rivals your creativity when it comes to these little conversations, but I have to respectfully disagree with the lace at crotch level comment…after all, EVERY girl needs a little lace here and THERE…


  3. OMG! I wondered why they had built-in aprons. Are they the kitchen staff in the zeppelin fleet? Oh, and my Moms name was Darla. Ha ha ha. –Karen


  4. Ah, home-ec teachers! My home-ec teacher neglected to tell one of my classmates about one way fabric before she started cutting out. At our class fashion show the poor child wore a dress made out of toile with a huge French chateau right-side up on the front, and upside-down on the back. I was appalled.


  5. You did it again. So funny. Love the others comments, too. This is a very strange design. As much as I love aprons, why would one deliberately wear this one?


  6. Gosh, can you imagine what an insulting anniversary gift this would make from a husband to a wife, especially if the apron part was in a contrasting fabric? (But the girl at the store said any wife would LOVE it! / You cant mean Cindy WALLIS? Shes been trying to break us up for YEARS! )


  7. Uh-huh, looks like Darla was already partaking of the coffee pot with that oops expression hand-to-face. A little wind to inflate that apron sail?
