One That got Away

I have a practice (bad or good, depending on how over-quota I feel about my eBay purchases in a month) of putting things on a view list and then never, ever taking a look at them again. this one was one of the ones that expired … I’m not even going to link to the sad, sad “This Auction has ENDED” page. I’m just showing you the picture.

I do this a lot. I have lists and lists of delayed action items; what this really implies is that I should do something immediately or it just doesn’t get done. There aren’t enough hours in the day! and if something isn’t great enough for me to click “Buy It Now” or to place a real bid, it’s not going to get bought.

This dress is pretty great, though, and I’m feeling small tinges of remorse, even though I don’t typically make sleeveless or cap-sleeve dresses. and even though the cowl really demands a solid fabric to set it off — it would disappear in a wild print. If I had managed to be on the ball enough to purchase this pattern, I would have made it in a deep green silk shantung, with the A-line skirt. Oh, well. “For all sad words of tongue and pen, the saddest are ‘It might have been.'”
