  7. you’re my second friend who posted that Liberace photo! Of course, he wants to wear the costume!

    I’ve made that men’s pattern, it’s great for that time period, the women’s is not so good.

    I want the stars and stripes platforms. Come to think of it, doesn’t the lovely Desiree have a pair?

    • I believe Desiree does have a pair! Of those shoes!!
