onion dress

I didn't think the rutabaga dress would get bought before me. The tomato dress, yes, everyone knew she'd go first, in all her sizes, and that's exactly what happened. The eggplant dress went next (in the smaller sizes first). Some people like purple. Then it was the carrot dress (in the bigger sizes). And then it was just me and the rutagbaga dress. Nobody knows what a rutabaga is! One girl who tried her on called it a "dirty turnip"! We hung on, pretending we didn't see the coats creeping closer. She got bought, finally, at $3. I'm still here.

[This is an actual deadstock dress, click on the image to visit the eBay auction. Thanks to Julie W for the link!]

Other Business
Hey, does anyone know where to buy the Nancy Drew fabric? The web site of the original seller ( is down and their phone's out, and a couple of people have emailed me looking to buy some! Nothing on Etsy or eBay, either. Any help greatly appreciated …
