My greedy little heart leaped when I saw this Simplicy pattern -- in my size!! -- at Mom's Patterns. Then my po' heart came crashing back to earth when I saw it was sold. Of course it would be: it's a popular size and the right look for right now. I was imagining the long-sleeve dress made in black silk and trimmed in jet beads in the moments before I reached the "Sold" notice. *sniffle*
If any of y'all should see this pattern on sale in reasonable size, and can resist buying it yourself, would you give me a head's up? (There are two for sale on ebay right now, both tiny).
I found the Balmain pattern at Fuzzy Lizzie's vintage. Check out the listing to see the back detail. How Jackie can you get?
