1950s Evening Dress Inspiration & win a pattern

I went to spotlight Fabrics yesterday to try and get some more of the fabric I am covering my lounge room chairs in.  Of course they have sold out, but I did find the most beautiful iridescent pale blue/mauve/brown shot taffeta instead.  A bit like this.

I oohhed and aahhhed and thought and dreamed......and then didn't get it.

But now I am going to go back and get it, because I have found the perfect pattern!

It's 50s style, but isn't full skirted so won't use ten metres of fabric.  And it's in my size - or any size really.

And it's a PDF so I can get it instantly. 

But I won't.  Because I have just entered a give away competition for two free patterns over at by Gum by Golly.  Entries close tonight, so go enter now.  Just click here.

Or if you want to see the full range of Mrs Depew's patterns, go visit her Etsy Shop.  What ever your preferred decade, there will something for you.

A little inspiration.

I think I might go back and get that fabric today, just in case. I am going to a ball tomorrow night after all...
