I don't know about you but every year I buy myself
a birthday present, something I really, really like.
This year I found myself something extra special and
it arrived with the post this morning.
It did cost a bit more than I would usually spend on a
pattern ($38 including shipping) but I doubt I would
find this particular pattern again for less.

As you probably know by now I'm crazy about 1940's
and 1950's summer wear.
This one is from the 1940's and I can't wait to try and
make this ensemble for myself.

So, do you do the same and if so, what have you given
yourself on your past birthdays?

I gave myself a really stupid present this year - a 1970s barbie doll that has the exact same coat that I own! I don't usually get into dolls but I thought it was really funny and had to be done.

Thats a fun pattern! Lets year I bought myself a car! It was my 20th bday I think. Normally I get myself a massage and facial. This past year I got myself a Shaheen playsuit with matching top, and my boyfriend got me a Shaheen sarong dress. I guess I was a really good girl this year! :)

Happy Birthday Beautiful!

I have that same pattern--can't wait to see how your outfit turns out!

This year I treated myself to a pair of shoes I had been eyeing; I received my tax refund right around my birthday so I decided to treat myself to something extra special :-)
