Erin over at A Dress A Day has posted a ginormic list of Christmas shopping ideas. Usually her readers are like ravening wolves and snatch up her awesomeness before I manage to even check her blog in the morning.
Today I saw this:
and I thought I had died and met my fairy godmother. LOOK AT IT!! The collar, the neckline, the back pleat! I can't stop staring at it; I can hardly type. And then I thought, "Well, there's no way this pattern will still be available" but because I am a masochist I decided to click on the link anyway and see how much some lucky soul paid for it.
Well she paid $12. And she was ME!
I recognize that there is no way I'll be able to wear this before next summer; and I realize that I have not had a 28 inch waist since.... 2003, BUT there is nothing like the proper motivation.
