Thriftstore Thursday May 15

It's the Ides of May and it is here in Santa Cruz. I found a somewhat frumpy, but well made Liz Claiborne dress in the thrift store.
If someone could please tell me why blogger makes some pictures horizontal, even though I uploaded them vertically, I would be very happy to have that information. In the meantime everybody lean to the right.
The fabric itself is a linen/rayon blend that is quite lovely.
Since there is no seamline up the front or back of the skirt, I may have enough to make a cute little wiggle skirt out of it.

A cute little hawaiian number like this one from Polyvore
There's a pattern for a dress similar to this in Gertie's Book for Better Sewing, which I already have in my hot little hands.


  1. What fun! I love the colors of the flowers on your sweet dress! Yeah for thrifting!

    1. Thanks Gina. It's so pretty I'm having a hard time putting the seam ripper to it.
