So pretty much...I've been terribly spoiled!
I got this vintage 1943 (!!!!) sewing pattern from ebay for ten buck-a-roos. That's cheaper than a regularly priced new pattern from a store. I have a gorgeous piece of history! I'm totally nerding out right now! Yes, I am not quite the size of the pattern, but that brings me to my next spoiled thing:
Wow! Thank you Bethany! I picked "Sew the Perfect Fit". I am so excited to try it out. However, I need to finish my first forties dress before I delve into anything else. And I am sure this class will help a lot.
