Thrift & the City

A couple of days ago I went out on a thrift shopping round. Wow, did I get lucky!

I found fabrics for a whole bunch of fun summer projects, and some for the autumn as well.

This plaid fabric is an old bed sheet that at the moment is cut, and is to become a pair of high waisted shorts from Burda June 2009 issue.

This lightweight cotton voile curtain will transform into a McCalls 6083 jumpsuit as soon as I get the pattern in the mail.

This jersey sailor print is my favorite, and it has already become a boatneck top that will be showed off in the MMM- challenge. Love it!
