We have been home for 4 days and things are returning to normal. While I don’t suffer greatly from jetlag, I did feel generally tired for the first couple of days which I think is simply travel fatigue.
Yesterday I had a peek in a couple of op shops (thrift shops) and picked up this top for $1. It was marked as $4 which seemed reasonable to me but when I took it to the counter it turned out to have a blue label and was reduced to 25% of the original price.
The top appeared to be in excellent condition with no marks or wear. It was several sizes larger than what I wear so my plan was to refashion it.
This is the result of a couple of hours work.
It is a little shorter than would be my preference but otherwise I am very happy with my handiwork.
I also bought this maxi-dress for $8. It was brand new with the original tags which showed the price as $60.
Once again, it was not my size, however, I could not resist the jade green fabric. I unpicked the dress to maximise the amount of usable fabric and I now have the equivalent of about 2 metres of 120cm wide jade green viscose fabric.
I am still debating as to how I will use it but it will probably be a dress or perhaps a pair of wide leg trousers.
What would you do with the fabric?
