... on CS finds. Not all bought at once! First a few dresses. I'll not show you all of this dress as it will cause you to develop a migraine but I like it.

This skirt is similar but not as headachy. I like its floatiness - perfect for dancing and swirling.

This one fits a treat. You may notice a colour (or lack of) theme here. I like black - it disguises all sorts of figure issues.

Not all black though. Here's another dance dress.

All these dresses cost less than £6 at the CS.

Not all dresses  - I couldn't pass up this basket (£4.50) could I? Even though I've got a few!!!!! already. This one is perfect for storing my WIP.

Finally today I procured these bits of material from the pound rail.

The velvet and sateen are a yard each at least.

The others are small rectangular samples from a sample book as they've got holes in. 

Pusscat approves of the purchases (which I've sneaked upstairs)!



  1. I love the first dress! Would love to see all of it. Its funny how our wardrobes develop themes be they black and white dance dresses or in my case animal prints and ethnic tribal prints. What ever makes you feel a million bucks! P x

  2. Some great bargains. I love all the dresses but I think my favourite is the next to last. Gorgeous basket too, I can see Puss approves.

  3. Love the fabric - especially the pretty floral one.

  6. You have got some really good finds there mum. I havent had chance to go thrifting in the cs the last week or two. I could do with checking them out for wool as my cs supply is rapidly dwindling. I have actually had to buy some from a wool shop at full price!

  7. Well done, all I can do is drool.

  8. What bargains.I love the dresses or should I say frocks!
