Skirting around the issue

I'm not sure what this winsome maiden is looking so intently at in her conservatory, but I don't half like her skirt:

Oh hang on, she's peeling an orange. Anyway, according to the caption, "Swallow motifs in a printed fabric transform this simple long skirt into an interesting and individual garment. The bold outlines of the bird motifs make them easy to apply, either with satin or zigzag stitch." Can't say fairer than that.

I found it in here:

Excuse the ginormous £1.99 price tag, it's actually printed, rather than stuck, onto the cover. Must have seemed like a good idea back in 1979.
