    The peony dress reminds me of some of my grandma’s dresses. I love the boatneck and simple sleeves.

    The Macaron looks quite cute. I imagine it made with a lace inset/top for something more dramatic!

    I just looked at this book at my local bookstore and told my mom to add it to my wishlist for Christmas. If I win, I’d use the gift certificate to get the Lady Grey pattern. I’ve wanted it since I followed along in a sew along.

    Seeing as I already own most of the newer patterns (but not the book!), I think I’d go for Macaron- I’m not sure how I’ve missed it for so long!
