The Best Husband in the World . . .
is mine! Look what he got me for my birthday from eBay:
I don't have it yet, but it is on the way! The crossover/shirred bust detail is really fantastic!
The pattern present came about because he wanted some gift ideas for my birthday. Rather than suggesting the usual suspects of flowers, jewelry, etc. , I sent him a list of vintage gown pattern auctions on eBay and asked him to win one for me. Since these gown patterns typically sell for more than a regular vintage pattern would, I thought it would be a good present. This is one that he won. This was in addition to the flowers and earrings (I'll show you those tomorrow) he bought me!
Thank you for all the birthday wishes! Tomorrow, I'll show you my new skirt, BWOF #115, 7/07. For now, I'll let you guess what fabric pattern I made it in!
Parting Shot: Kiwi is now out and about the house! Today I found her on a dining room chair, "hiding" (napping) beneath the tablecloth.
