Above is my wool cut apart and washed and pressed. I still need several colors to complete the project. Soooooo, I went back again on Friday. I got a really nice red wool blazer, which happens to be my size, for $2.50. Except, I don't think I can bring myself to cut it up! I did buy the cream and red skirts at Goodwill. Wound up costing me a bit more, but the skirt is a bigger size, so I thought it was still a bargain.
That dark color is a reddish brown. Goodwill had a gorgeous orange wool blazer, but darn it, $4.50. Just couldn't do it. I am now always looking and feeling the clothes in the thrift store. Why didn't I think of this earlier?
