I am very blessed with an amazing thrift store near my house. I know when I go in there, I have to be prepared to walk away with nothing (just like any thrift store), but usually there is some hidden treasure I can find. Recently, my crafty finds have been amazing. The vintage patterns are all 25 cents a piece and the most expensive fabric is $1 a yard. And recently, the fabric has been 25 cents per cut. Per cut…as in I can walk away with 4 yards of fabric for 25 cents. Insane…I know. If ever we move, I’ll be heartbroken to leave this great thrift store behind. Well, the other day I scored this black knit with an eyelet like pattern throughout. I wasn’t sure if it looked old and frumpy or pretty darn cool. I decided to make a Date Night Dress out of it, and I have to say, I think it looks awesome. This is probably my most worn me made item…either this or my Archer tank. I love the easiness of this dress. It is super comfy, super simple, and (I think) looks pulled together. (Have I said I like this dress yet?) So, do you have a favorite thing you have made for yourself? I may need to try out your pattern, because I could see me making five more of these dresses from April’s pattern (not that that would be a bad thing).
