Thrift shopping (for fabric and other stuff) is my favorite activity.

Neat,you did a great job. There are so many great fabrics that people who don't know fabrics throw out, I am always searching thrifts for wools, silks etc.

This looks really updated and cute! I have so many tops that could use this treatment.
