Frump-ton comes alive

My friend,Stephanie, recently sent me this glorious example of American craft.
Ummm, thank you? LOL

OK, here is a little lesson in designing a sewing pattern:

A – Avoid words that suggest that what you’re wearing will make you look, oh, I dunno, dowdy, dumpy… FRUMPY!

B – It’s probably a good idea to avoid designs that resemble leftover costumes from an Eastern European production of Fiddler on the Roof.

C – When taking the pattern sleeve picture, it’s best to NOT have the models on the left looking at the model on the right like they are questioning her sanity in choosing her current outfit.

But you know, these are just suggestions, so grain of salt and all…
