This week, I visited my favorite local thrift store for inspiration. I have always loved thrift stores and would frequent them with my grandmother when I was a little girl. There are just so many ‘finds’ and the thrill for me is going through each and every inch of the store!
This particular day, I went to find play clothes for my daughter and of course, looking for clothing and linen to recycle and upcycle. I also needed a used hand mixer for making lotions and hair products. Any hoot, they were cleaning out and re-organizing their craft section and I found some wonderful vintage patterns. These patterns will have to be altered to fit; but they are gorgeous!
I simply love the white blouse with a front tie on the above pattern (McCalls 1961). I also like the yellow front tie blouse!
Of course, I love the full skirt on this pattern! (Simplicity 1959)
And, the yellow skirt in the middle is cute! (Simplicity 1975)
I was able to get 6 patterns (including these three) for .69 cents. Great Buy! I will have fun going through my fabric stash to sew these cute pieces!
This next pattern was so, so, cute and the choices of fabrics on the pic are something I would do…it is totally ‘funked out’! I purchased this Lila Tueller pattern from Sweet Dream Designs on Etsy. Isn’t it cute?!
I have some cute scrap fabrics that I will use for this one!
Needless to say, I will have great fun working on these pieces for my summer wardrobe! Happy Sewing!
