Sketch of a model in a knit jacket over pants and a criss-crossed top tied at the waist. Text of note: "Simple slip-on easy pants + a brief little criss-cross top of fine all wool jersey in a soft mauvey tone are creature comfort to me -- I like the contrast of a thick texturey mix of a knit over it all in subtle wisteria colors --At bottom: May 30, 1980 for Bernadine Morris NY Times"
Handwritten comment with drawing of woman wearing suede trousers with 3 rows of fringe: [title:] Salute to Ernestine Carter / Mrs. Ernestine Carter, women’s page editor of the London Sunday Times, wrote this back in 1958 –“What I was looking for in New York were clothes so absolutely American in concept that they could spring from no other source. Then one day I saw a pair of fringed suede trousers. That designer, I decided was for me. So, I met Bonnie Cashin.”Thank you Thank you Miss Carter!We’ve grown a lot since then – and this year we think it might be time to revive fringed leather – right out of our own Daniel Boone heritage—
Handwritten on drawing: -- there are my "gringo" pants with wrap-front for a flat tummy - I'm tired of mannish front plackets -- I like elastic in the back - straight + narrow legs - + elastic at ankle for easy booting -- / Bonnie Cashin
