Sew Expensive... McCall 8070 1930's Evening Gown
Hello Lovely readers! I am back from a very long, very relaxing visit with my husband's family in Virginia. There among what I can only call the family every girl dreams of being apart of, I was able to do a bit more healing. Things really did seam to get better... and then I came home and lo and behold, all of my pain was still here waiting for me when I got back. But I had just a little bit more strength, and a little bit more perspective to help me deal with it.
This sucks... but then, it's supposed to, isn't it?
On a lighter note, I found the loveliest pattern on Ebay and was instantly struck with the thought, "Mama would have swooned over this." I'm having more of these moments now, where I can think of her without picturing her painful passing, and those moments are like a life raft.
The pattern I was watching was McCall 8070 and imagine my delight when it sold for a high enough sum to be featured on Sew Expensive!
This original McCall 8070 just sold for an appropriately stunning $280.68! Swoon, indeed! (164£ or 206€, my darlings).
Don't you just love the combination of the dolman sleeve and low draped back? And check out those inverted pleats at the center front and back hem - what in interesting little detail to add!
It's amazing how something that shows so little skin could be so incredibly sexy.
How about you, my dear readers? Would you wear something like this for dinner and dancing?
