The creative reuse shop is open and so far, wildly successful.
Here are my purchases last evening. I measured the blue fabric (it has a shirting pattern, but it's heavier, more like a twill) and it's four and a half yards. I see a dress in my future!
There were lots more stores open, too, and I came away with the two brooches as well. Tempting as it was to put the red-brown one on my dress, I resisted.
When I was helping to sort fabric for the shop a few weeks back, I came across this shift dress from what, the 1970s? and since finished clothes are not part of the shop, A shrugged and told me to take it.
And I am already planning to wear the dress this fall with my orange leather coat and brown boots. Summer's charm is beginning to wane and I'm dreaming of sweaters and pumpkin and crispy leaves. . .
