Like many of you, I'm sure, I received notification of three new patterns. (I'm not affiliated with the company, just spreading new pattern news)

Beach Romper

Leading Lady Gown

Object d'art dress

I hope these links work for you.

Cute! That gown would be stunning in a satin.

Leading lady would make a lovely wedding dress.
I wish I had somewhere to wear it.

The Leading Lady is a heart stopper. If I could figure out how to convert it to a fuller skirt, I would be making it asap! Hmmm... wondering if I could make the hip detail and overlay it on to a full skirt....

@happytobehere i have learned to make the things and if I have to take myself to the movies or somewhere I will. I am married and kids are grown, grands are growing.
My mother always saved her dresses we would buy for a special occasion. She saved her dishes for a special occasion. Well she was so busy saving she forgot to live. She passed away at a young 42. I was only 13. 'All those things went to the greedy sisters because nobody loved them like she did and nobody would save them for me till I became a adult. Sure the sisters claimed they were gonna save this and that for me. They still have it. I asked when I was grown to have those things like jewelry and other things back. They told me they were saving it now for my daughter. Well she is grown and they are saving it for her daughter who is now 16.
I say live for today. Tomorrow isn't promised.

I am sorry to read that your mother passed away so young, but I'm glad that you learned from her behaviour and are enjoying what you have today rather than saving it for best.

Up until quite recently I was guilty of keeping this back for a special occasion, but we had some massive earthquakes here in 2010 and 2011 and I was lucky to escape with my life, let alone my possessions. Thankfully I retained both but I don't keep things for "Sunday best" any more. If I want to use the last of my most expensive perfume or cut into that fancy silk, I do it. As you say, life is too short and we are are not guaranteed a tomorrow!

With that in mind, I have been dithering for at least a year about a purchase from Decades of Style and one from Wearing History, and I think I'm going to do both
