Love "That Girl"

When I saw the little girl above on a McCall's pattern in a thrift store, the first thing that came to my mind was "That Girl".
Must have been the hat....
I'm kind of obsessed with the show lately. It's on every weekday morning on a TV station called MeTV, and I record it and watch it.
Again, below, you see McCall's pattern No. 9798 - she even has her little white gloves in her hand, too. I do not really think it is a coincidence that the pattern is dated 1969, and "That Girl" with the wonderful Marlo Thomas aired from 1966 to 1971.

The very same week, I also found one of the "Marlo's Corner" patterns. But, this one is from 1975 - a little bit later on.
I LOVE watching "That Girl". I love Marlo, her wardrobe, Ted Bessell as Donald Hollinger, and all of the other regulars and guest stars in the show.
I think I am enjoying it as much as I did when I first saw it all those years ago.
Or maybe even more
