The Fitting Room

I love watching other women being fitted for their new lives, not with fashion

stowed away in special drawers. These dressmakers cherish old patterns as you

and I cherish old love letters, the pat- terns, like the letters, serving as

reminders that something once thought perfect may eventually return to favor.
