Following Hilda's lead, Marlene had a facelift – not a big one, just a few tweaks here and there. And although she was certainly fine as she was, she feels great about herself now. So do I :).
In addition to modified abbreviations, phrasing, and enhanced schematics (that now include centimeters), I took the liberty of normalizing a few of the measurements across sizes. All finished measures are shown below. Having fully internalized my dad's constant mantra that "neatness counts," I simply had no choice :). It's doubtful that anyone will notice – besides me and dad, of course.
If anyone who purchased Marlene does not yet have the pattern upgrade in her or his library, please don't hesitate to let me know.
Meanwhile Mildred's revision is hot on her heels.
