Other goodies from the CWGS

Here’s find number two from the City Wide Garage Sale.

I’ve never bought or worked with a vintage pattern before, but I have really wanted to take the plunge. All the ones I find on Etsy, though, are way too expensive for me to experiment with, especially considering all the modifications I’ll have to make because — really? — girls just didn’t come in my size back then (or so it seems!).

But these? These were $1 each. How could I resist?

These are so Audrey Hepburn I could just scream. Of course, I’m not build like Lady A, but I still think they might work on me…

I’m kind of a sucker for the bodice detailing here… and I love stripes, even though I don’t own anything striped!

The pants are just silly, and I don’t know that the top will work, logistically, with my tummy, but isn’t it adorable?

Best $3 I’ve ever spent at the CWGS!
