What is it with pattern illustrators and chairs?!
Granted, McCall's 3493 isn't as maddening as McCall's 3435, the pattern illustration that nearly drove me out of my mind. The chair actually is part of the main illustration, instead of being thrown in as an odd focal point. And it's pretty.
Still...why is Blue staring at it with such admiration? And look at how Brown has her foot perched precariously on the chair. As distracted as she is, she's going to trip and fall as soon as she tries to move. Is that what Blue is secretly hoping for? Or does her fascinated gaze have less to do with the chair and much more to do with the proximity of her gloved hand to Brown's bare one?
