Seamless - Family Portrait

“This is my Uncle Leonard and his family. Aunt LouJean was a great seamstress, and just HAD to make shirts and pants for the whole family every time we had a reunion. This was one of the CLASSIC examples.  My favorite is how Uncle Leonard’s shirt looks like a permanent bib has been sewn on it, and Aunt LouJean’s shirt is almost blazer-like with the pink lapels and the pink rolled up sleeves.”

    A great seamstress – but unfortunately colour blind.

    Ahh! The bug zapper adds so much to the photo. Do those shirts attract the insect population? Also, there seems to be mixed signals among the children whether the shirts are to be tucked in. The older sister says IN, the little girl says OUT, and the boy just can’t decide one way or another.

    If you stare at the fabric long enough, you can actually start to see what she must have seen in it…………..

    Wait, no, nevermind, I think I was just cross-eyed for a second.

    Any man that would wear that shirt is a man who truly, TRULY, loves his wife!!

    Did Dad have yellow pants?

    I love how the bug zapper in the background brings out the putrid green color in the shirts!

      oh yeahhh! lol And imagine how those shirts glowed in the light of the bug zapper after dark. Black light extravaganza!

    This picture has caused more seizures than the Dennō Senshi Porygon episode of Pokemon. Do not stare directly at it if you suffer from epilepsy.

    Dear Lord those things should have been burned your aunt’s sewing license permanently revoked!
