McCall 957 is an interesting artifact in the history of male/female relationships:
I'm glad it allows your helpmate to "have just as much fun as you!" in preparing dinner and doing household chores, and I do hope that husbands thought they were wonderful. I question the assertion that hubbies particularly appreciated the "I'm in again" note, though. Can't you imagine some hapless young bride making the aprons and presenting them to her beloved every night when he came home from work? "You're in again, honey -- now go peel those carrots." At first he'd think it was cute -- then there'd come the day where the boss had yelled at him and he just couldn't take it. He'd snap and she'd cry, not understanding why the pattern envelope had let her down so.
