Sew Expensive... McCall 8400
I have a super-fun bad habit. I like to watch sewing patterns I know I won't be able to afford sell for a fortune on Ebay. Occasionally, I'll even buy one anyways.
That leads me to create a new segment called "Sew Expensive". We can all swoon together over pictures, grumble over prices, and maybe even learn something as I post about these beauties.
Today for your viewing pleasure I have McCall 8400 which recently sold for $163.50 on Ebay.
Wouldn't you love to have that kind of pattern buying budget?
This evening gown pattern is from 1935 and just drips glamor. The interesting feature about this gown is that the rounded matronly collar is deceptively demure until you look down to the deep slit at the armhole. It's designed to tantalize without revealing and it's pure genius.
If you bought this, whoever you are, I'll just bet your life is really interesting. And also, will you be my friend?
