What a great short movie. But Betty, don't you think you should take the plastic off those lamp shades?

From this to Project Runway....You've come a long way, baby. And here to present the award for Excellence in Hokey Short Films, here's Betty.

I wonder if Simplicity knows this thing is still in circulation?

Nice call on the lampshades, Sherril

Wow, that's a scream. I especially love the hormone-laden, goggle-eyed reaction Betty gets from young Johnny (((GULP!))) when she models her new dress for him. Some things never change.

Absolutely hilarious! But why doesn't a Simplicity staff member appear in my sewing room when I need fitting help?

Interesting thought, Rhonda. What do you think a film like this would look like today?

I'm thinking bustiers and mini-skirts for "that know-how look." (Know how to what?)
