Sample maker: “Who cares. I like stripes.”

Pattern maker: “I’m concerned that you don’t understand how…”

I guess this needs to convert into a tote because the nine thousand pockets already on this thing just won’t be enough to carry all your crap? And what’t the point of making the sample look the same on the inside AND the outside?

And I get that this is a pretty basic shape, but there are VERY few patterns that work well from a size small to triple extra large, especially ones that turn into functioning bags.
