M D Sparks. The book opens and has two places for tiny photos. I also liked the $35 price.
Now for the bad. My son was so proud of these shorts he bought Saturday.
It's not a big deal in this house. I have a seam ripper, and I know how to use it. (I should embroider that saying on something.) I'll rip it out and put in new reinforcement stitching on the pocket. It's probably not nice, but I kind of like seeing that even the pros mess up now and then. It makes me feel better about my sewing failures. I'd prefer that stores acknowledge the flaws rather than just sliding them onto the sale rack, though.
Feel free to use this as a cautionary tale when trying to train the males in the family to try on the freakin' clothes before buying them. Stop laughing! As we approach our 30th anniversary, my husband almost always tries on clothes before buying as long as I'm there with him and insist.
