Meanwhile, it's Saturday! I have buttonholes to sew and a new project to cut out. I pinned this dress this week and it is fantastic:
The color is gorgeous. LOVE the tiny pleats on the skirt and the tailored sleeve. Looks a LOT like this doesn't it?

I have had this pattern (vintage Simplicity 3039) in my stash for a while now:
That combo would be like....
And bonus, if I get the dress all nicely fitted (should be easy since I've been playing around with a "sloper" I made from another project bodice) then I can use that hot pink Imperial broadcloth I bought last year to make Chuck's dress too.
Good plan, right?
