Meanwhile, here's a picture of last week's thrift store find. A gorgeous crinoline/petticoat that I got for $5!!
I love it and can't wait to wear it under some of the dresses that I'm planning to make. ;-) (No, I won't be wearing it the way I am in those pictures-- I'll be wearing it under something. The shirt in the pictures is for modesty. :-) ) Anyway-- I love it! It is so PUFFY and FULL!!! And I'm so glad I don't have to make one now. I think one yard of the netting would have cost the same price that I bought the whole crinoline for. :-P
