Today's poem is by Caroline Knox
Dress Pattern with an Interior
I will be assembled out of
noisy ecru tissue paper
printed with navy blue directions.
"Peace has the human dress."
Baste sensible Pellon along upper edge, dummy,
through all thicknesses, as shown;
raw edges even, pinking gusset and peplum.
Viyella is pinned to my components.
Topstitching takes place.
Now I am snappy Aunt Sally.
The contours gleam in the princess line, as I live and breathe.
In completion, seams get the Hong Kong finish,
a couture touch, and actually quite easy to do.
