Remember McCall's 3057, the awesome 70s embroidery pattern for giant guitars and chains? McCall's issued a SECOND "Zigging on the Zagged Line" pattern in 1971, and it's got me so excited that I'm this close to putting up "Zigging on the Zagged Line" on a Café Press t-shirt.

Wowza! Check out the GIANT TIE you could embroider on your frock! The giant heart medallion! The full body spiderweb and the anaconda! Oh, but there's more! Check out the back (photo courtesy Mary & Bill's Vintage and Newer Sewing Patterns on etsy):

(Speaking of PR, how awesomely amazing was last week's episode with the downfall of Team Luxe and Gretchen?) II'd love to see the judges contemplate a giant embroidered bird medallion!
