    The Demise of the Pinafore.

    Pinafores were such versatile useful garments for women and girls. But now they have all but passed into history.I guess part of the demise of pinafores is that women and girls don't wear dresses nearly as much as when I was growing up. And you'd look ridiculous wearing a...

    Isn'T Living With Someone Fun? (If They Are The Right Person)
