Romance, a fashion show, sewing instruction, and a 5-foot-tall sewing pattern envelope—this short film by Simplicity Pattern Co. has it all!
My favorite piece of dialogue…
Johnny: Do you make your own clothes?
Girl: Sure! Lots of us girls do.
Johnny: But your clothes look so professional.
Girl: Johnny, don’t you know that the most professional looking clothes are those made by hand? Individually. You don’t think that people like movie stars buy their clothes off of racks, do you?
Johnny: Well no, but gee, the people who make their clothes are professionals. You’re just a high school girl. Gee, maybe you ought to be a designer yourself.
Girl: Well silly! I am a designer for myself. We learned that in our home economics classes too, besides how to fit and sew like a professional.
Johnny: You make it sound as if dressmaking is an easy thing.
Girl: It is! I just let my pattern tell me what to do, and it comes out alright.

Would love to hear what you think of this video. Personally, I just love watching the girl actually sew!
Thank you, Melissa Watson for introducing me to this video!
