    I was watching that auction too Audrey. I ended up forgoing the pattern and bidding on a vintage hair curler instead.:)

    It was a 36. If it had been a 38 or 40, it would have been worth over $30 for me. I'm willing to pay more for the larger sizes, but not when I have to grade up.

    When I first realized they were up for bidding, I had the ending time wrong, thus I didn't get to bid. However, no one had purchased them, thus I e-mailed the seller, and they were re-listed, however, someone snatched them up before I saw the e-mail (there was an option to buy them immediately). Absolutely depressing (supporting group hug!):

    They would have been my first vintage shoes as well.

    Ouch! That stinks, I'm sorry! I saw those and thought they were gorgeous (too small for me though ;))!

    Oh no Adele, I'm so sorry! What a beautiful pair of shoes! Sad Sad Sad. Its too bad the seller didn't just offer them to you since you're the one who emailed them in the first place.:(

    Happy to copy the Simplicity 2817

    I won a copy of this pattern last week or so. It's a 32" bust if you're interested...

    These NOS shoes went for $112.50. I kinda hope they went to the girl who won that amazing blue dress. Wouldn't they be fabulous together!

    I just gave this up, it was a day left on the auction and the price was already too high. But it is a beauty, though... Too bad, ireally wanted this one.

    And also this 50's dress, too pricey.

    I have that dress. It's a £12 Primark one that was in stock last April:
