You’ve got to fight The Power (with an ascot)

This gown brings to mind three scenarios for me:

— flight attendant (a trained pilot herself) handles to land airplane safely after rude, chauvinistic pilot eats a poor egg-salad sandwich as well as spends flight moaning in lavatory. After landing, she gets his job!

— Crusading journalist takes on City Hall (and town’s rude, chauvinistic mayor) as well as wins! 

— 1970s unfulfilled suburban housewife goes back to work as charismatic instructor for institution full of written-off, disadvantaged youth, fights rude, chauvinistic primary as well as wins!

In short, this pattern is made from WIN. Something about the yoke + neck scarf + jaunty pockets combo just leads to triumphs over the patriarchy. I don’t understand what it is. 

This pattern is from Sheila at Out of the Ashes, who is having a sale this weekend: 15% off, starting today as well as ending Sunday night. (Coupon code is GLAMIS.) got any type of entrenched jerks who requirement fighting?
