thrifty thursday

I'm back!! A very big thank you to Doug for installing the new hard drive and memory card so I didn't have to spend hours on the phone while someone else walked me through it.
On to some thrifty goodness...
I had planned to post this a couple of weeks ago as a follow up to the previous Thursday.
More patterns from the Salvation Army - I love the collar on the middle dress.
I think my mother had this pattern. Three pattern pieces, hmmm. Looks easy, but I'll bet you have to have the fit just right with a muslin before you tackle this one or it'll look like a 7th grade home ec project gone very wrong. Not that that's ever happened to me. ; )

This one might actually get made. I'm wondering if I can steel my nerves and order enough Liberty lawn to sew up the bottom version.

During my forced break I did plenty of sewing, some quilting, a bit of painting and a lot of organizing (I won't bore you with pictures of my new filing system, but the pile of papers that could be recycled or shredded made me VERY happy). I'll work my way through the photos over the next couple of weeks. It's good to be back.

Welcome back! And in perfect time for a Thrifty Thursday post. I have a huge crush on that Vogue pattern and think you should absolutely whip it up in a Liberty fabric.

Ooh, I love that Simplicity pattern. Simple and stylish.
