Thrifting fabric

My sisters and I went to a thrift store a couple Saturdays ago. Saw some cute calico and polka dot fabric. I don't know if they are vintage or not because they had that crisp feel like not having been laundered. But I laundered and already made some flower pins with some of them (shown in next post).















The last photo is of a handmade dress (no tags, seams not cut). I bought because I like the print and the bottom design looked just right to make fabric cuffs.



Can't forget these cute buttons came in the same plastic bag with the fabric. Pretty good for under $5 bucks, huh?
