I was surfing around the internet and came across this pattern. I almost squealed when I saw it. It is a good thing I didn't because my students were taking a test. I was keeping one eye on them and one eye on the computer screen. Here is the vision of gorgeousness---vintage Vogue 2112:
Suddenly it came to me to look on etsy. Guess what? I found it in my size..well almost. I will have to take in the bust, but everything else is right. Also, it was $17.95 plus shipping which brought it to only $20.45. I never thought I would describe a pattern as ONLY costing $20, but when you have seen it for $95, then $20 seems cheap. I already have the fabric I am going to use--a bright red linen blend that has been in my stash for years. I will definitely make a muslin for this. I have learned a valuable lesson the hard way on that.
I have two more things I need to do before I make this dress. I know it is going to be too cold soon to wear it, but I might could wear it to a Christmas gathering that is inside where it is warm. Those two other things are two skirts. I hope to have one to show you this weekend.
