I started out with stuff I've already got but at 50 cents or a dollar a piece I just couldn't pass on them.
Next I moved on to some vintage patterns and fabric
Can you ever have enough tracing paper?? Not at $1 for the whole batch!
This is some kind of weird curling iron for clothes! Hope I don't burn down the house when I plug it in. Seriously! It too was $1.
And the piece de resistance...
When was the last time you saw one of these? Depending on how old you are, you may not even know what it is. It's what fabric stores use to used to measure your fabric. I don't know what I'm going to use it for...maybe just for decoration but I love it! It makes me all nostalgic!
In other news, I finally bought the fabric for my dress today. I hope to work on pattern alterations tomorrow and the dress itself no later than Monday. I work better under pressure or at least that's what I keep telling myself. I stopped into David's Bridal today for snoop shopping. One thing I found out is that the heavily beaded bodiced gowns have a lapped zipper in the back, not invisible. The beading is totally removed from the underside of the lap. Interesting!
