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.

It is awesome, you are right. I love the 50s-60s dresses

Heh - I bought the pattern that was featured on DaD directly below yours. Even though there's no conceivable way to nurse a baby in it. Oh well - at least I'm not buying vintage dress patterns while pregnant.

Oh wait...
