But Vogue 8184? Oh my god, whoever invented this pattern please swing on by my house so I can bestow overwhelming gratitude! This will be the (counting out loud on fingers) FIFTH version of this dress I will have made (you can check one version out here). It's my desert island pattern: you know the question: if you can only take one pattern to a desert island blah blah blah.
Well, this my friends it it. It's the perfect pattern. You can dress it up and make a fancy cocktail number, or you can make it up in patchwork cotton with straps and full skirt and use it as the perfect day dress, like the one I'm wearing as I sit here typing this.
And if you doubt how much I love this patten this lean forward and have a squint at your monitor: I've actually written on the pattern envelope. A seamstress hath no greater love than for a pattern she is willing to write on. I rest my case. It's true pattern perfection. (oh, and I am a big dork. Writing on a pattern indeed!)
