$2 Boden shirt. I do love these branded items. First because there is a certain assumption of quality that can be made about the better brands. And second because I love looking through the catalogs that come in the mailbox but choose not to afford the clothes in them. So I really love getting a good brand at thrift store prices.
Also, can you spot the new finished sewing project? Stay tuned!

Thrifted this week: a Laura Ashley skirt. I seldom have time to try things on while shopping, so clothes for me from a thrift store are a rare thing. This makes me feel feminine and I love the medallion fabric. I’ll make it into a dress for my girly when I tire of it. $6.

School clothes and larger sizes are coming up in the thrift store search. This week I found three yards of linen fabric for $3. Shirts from H&M and Target, and jeans from Gap and Children’s Place. All for $9.47. My girl wears size 8-10 at the waist, but I have to tailor off 2-3 inches at the bottom. And she isn’t really chubby! I love these colors.

This week’s haul of kids clothes. I threw away three pairs of pants with butchered knees and was thankful to find replacements. I do select thrifted clothes very carefully. Gone are the days when I could buy a size without having the child try it on and be confident that it fit, so clothes must be perfectly sized and of good quality. These are from left to right Gap, Gap, Gap, Gap, and Old Navy and while these brands matter not as a sign of status, they usually mean the clothes will last well and have good hand-me-down value. $10 for all.
