What were the pattern illustrators at Kwik Sew smoking in the 70s? I'm sorry, but I don't associate women's undergarments in a field with concepts like "fun hobby" and "happy sewing." I associate them with concepts like "crime scene" and "ritual murder."
And no, the pretty flowers don't make it any better.
P.S. It's available over at MOMSPatterns. They're having a sale through October 31 -- just use the code "dressup" to get 15% off.
