Today's Pattern Story

Marlene: Darlene, do you see that?


Darlene: What?

Marlene: That poor woman over there. No, not now. Now. Look.

Darlene: Oh, my goodness. I can’t believe it.

Marlene: So you’re seeing it too? I thought I was hallucinating.

Darlene: No — she’s actually wearing a dress without any pockets.

Marlene: I didn’t know they still made those!

Darlene: It must have been grandmothered in. It’s certainly from before the Handbag Revolt.

Marlene: Where does she put her keys? Or her lipstick? Or … her hands?

Darlene: We shouldn’t stare. It’s not kind. I’ve got two handkerchiefs and some safety pins in my pockets, maybe we can offer to make her some pockets? Just until she can get home.

Marlene: You’ve got a good heart, Darlene. Let’s go.

  1. I agree with Gail above. I love your humor and with the pattern ladies it is hysterical I cannot look at a Vintage pattern now without thinking of some silly dialogue to go with it. Keep up the good work!


  2. This made me giggle. I love your blog and after catching up on the 100 dress posting I feel I must get back to sewing. After making my daughter’s wedding dress (against my will I must say) I just packed up my machine. But I think it’s time to get it back out.
