I have a weakness for evening gown patterns. I haven't the foggiest idea why since I never sew them, and never have anywhere to wear them, but I adore them nonetheless.
But this obsession gives me an excuse to stalk Ebay for the occasional beauty, and it gives me fuel for our latest "Sew Expensive."
Today for you I have McCall 9124 from 1937. This beautiful low-backed gown has lovely slightly flared skirt and a modest but elegant front.
But I'm sure you're quite interested to know what it sold for, aren't you?
McCall 9124 recently sold on Ebay for a very believable sum of $285. I'll bet it was worth every single penny.
It would have been ridiculous for me to have spent that much money on a pattern I'll probably never use.
That doesn't stop me from wishing I had anyways.
How about you? Do you have a favorite evening gown pattern?
