That pattern lady was determined to make shorts!

Simplicity 9710 Easy to sew not shorts

So my girlfriend who sewed up some Gorgeous Tops (made two!) scribbled all over her patterns I think she was trying to sell. She’d bought them at the Minnesota Fabrics in Ford City (which I think now is the Hancock chain) and the JoAnn Fabrics also in Ford City. I picked them up at the thrift in Markham some 15 miles south.

You know, she kept track of her size (an 18) —

Then she lets loose once she got all determined to make shorts.

Dang, lady. I respect your tenacity though not always your taste.

My kingdom to figure out who she is.
