Thrift Haul Where Shoulder Pads Come to Die

reblogged from BeingZhenya.com

Let’s call it my Christmas Thrift Haul! My finds are as unpredictable, as Minnesota weather! I have been planning this thrift trip for a while, but last weeks SNOWPOCALYPSE delayed it. This weekend it rained… Yes, Global Warming is getting the best of our winters (I can always go back to Russia for that, but I hear it’s not going that well there either :) )

So here is what I got:
Fabric first!

The top one is a really bright pink, and unfortunately my iPhone camera doesn’t do this fabric justice. The only thing I was really bummed about was the price. I paid $8.99 plus tax for 7.5 yards. Now the original tag was still attached to the fabric, and it read $7.50! What’s up with that Goodwill??? The middle and the bottom fabrics are meant for a dress I am planning on sewing sometime in the future! Hopefully soon!
I also got this awesome vintage pattern, and the great thing about it is – ONE SIZE FITS ALL! So come to me with your fabrics and we can make you a dress like this. I am planning on altering the sleeves, though!

And finally the dresses! All vintage, all from Savers, $3.99 each! I love each and every single one of them!

Of course two out of the three dresses came with shoulder pads, but I took them out faster than a blink of an eye! Now only to figure out what to do with them! They are so pretty, I can’t just throw them away!

So? What do you think? Did I do well? Not so well! It all came to under $30! Don’t forget to check out my blog for more thrift hauls and DIY ideas!
Have a great week!
