McCall's 6781, copyright 1979, has one of those pattern envelope illustrations that just puzzles me the more I look at it:
First of all, what's with those odd green apple appliqués? Are they a Pynchon-inspired symbol, a la the Trystero posthorn, out to alert those in the know to this pattern's TRUE meaning?
Secondly, is this the pattern guaranteed to put your young one to sleep? Four of those girls, with their Weasly-red hair and wide feet, are happily succumbing to dreamland. I mean, they're positively giddy. Do the nightgowns emit ether or something? Poor little View B Red is the only one successfully fighting it off, and I fear what dreadful thing she's going to catch her parents doing when she sneaks down to the romper room at midnight.
