This is not to recommend the sale (I think $4.99 is a deal if you can get a Desperately NeededWanted Pattern)


HOWEVER, I think this looks really good and attractive:



Posed like RTW and with the number on the side so you can recognize and find the pattern.

Very fashion spread-ish, don't you think?

I think I'm going to write to them to congratulate them on this initiative. We need more of this type of brand presentation.

I agree with you. Better than the off the wall poses! If I worked at Butterick I would really work the patterns by Gertie, they are awesome!

Nice ad?

Yes but there is a problem all the patterns have the same number and it looks like none of the garments are of that pattern.

Pshhhhhhh...silly details.

That is pretty funny though. It reminds me of when I was working at a newspaper and someone forgot to replace the dummy text in the blurb at the top of a front page story. The whole town opened the paper that day to see "blurby here please please pleasy please". Ooops.

That is priceless.

I cannot forget the day the biggest newspaper added an extraneous accent to the then-president's name in the headline, read out loud it was too funny!

(They lost one of their older correctors a couple of months ago, though. Poor guy was done in by the crazy spelling and questionable grammar, no doubt)

Well, I know they read our boards so I hope the CORRECT numbers will be resent.
