So, you’re like me and you watched the awards shows, just to see what people had on, of course! And you thought to yourself, I could look that good if I had that fabulous dress! Well, don’t covet it any longer! I know, you don’t have the cash to go buy it. Heck, if you’re like me, even the knock-off is too expensive! So, where does this leave you? Looking for a pattern to make it yourself, of course! (And if you’re like me and have hundreds of patterns stock piled for who knows what reason, you may already have a pattern on hand!) The Pastor’s Wife is helping you covet no more! (And note: this list is not extensive. There are probably dozens more patterns for each one I selected. And know that I have not personally tried every pattern mentioned.) Click on photos for links!!!
