I took the plunge. These are arriving in 2-4 days.
I feel shaky and sweaty palmed in a "what did I just do?" kind of way. They have been selling out like crazy and I checked online for the hundredth time this week, and one website had the pink, and only in my size. It's a sign, right? So I did it. My birthday is Thursday and I hope they arrive in time!
And just to prove even more of what a crazyperson I am, I got up early this morning and made a dress to go with them. I sewed a dress to go with shoes I had not yet purchased.
I will for sure post a picture of them together when they arrive, and more about the dress!
To assuage my guilt, I listed 12 vintage patterns and a yard of the leftover fabric on Etsy. You can find them here if you are interested. They are mostly 36 bust and from 1948-1965ish.

I also made a sizable donation to the American Council of the Blind thrift store (clothes and shoes) and listed a pair of Nine West boots on eBay. I feel happy and relieved!
