Hooray for tailors who make off the rack clothes work for those of us without off the rack shapes. My complaint is that only good men’s stores seem to offer tailoring any more. In my youth I never was allowed to wear a dress or skirt until it had been to the seamstress and properly ‘hung’ and hemmed. I had the shoulders and sleeves of jackets altered too. The aunt who raised me had grown up with a maiden aunt who was a seamstress living on the farm as part of the family so even though there might have been a depression going on her clothes for school and going out were all properly fitted. Years ago I bought a nice Ralph Lauren suit at a Nordstrom store while on a trip largely because the clerk said they offered alterations and would ship it to me. I think that was the last time I found in store tailoring offered with women’s clothes.
I am of an age and from a rural area where during my childhood the only place to see movies was an a drive-in during the summer. There were no multiplex cinemas. I never when to many drive-in showings. I think Jungle Book during elementary school was my first. And I remember that I saw the first Star Wars film with my brother at a drive-in. That may have been the last film I saw at a drive-in. No, I can tell no tales of dates at the drive-in or of not seeing the film because of back seat activities but …. I am betting I just might have a blog follower or two who can not say the same. Not asking for any confessions here.
Those are the wacky holiday observances for June the 6th.
