charity shop challenge - february

charity shop challenge

here's a charity shop challenge post for february. i'm a bit low on the ol' funds so should probably leave further shopping until next month. this image isn't of something i actually bought in february however. i picked up this dress for £3.99 in a charity shop a few years ago - the only difference is that it was about twelve inches longer. i finally fulfilled my intention of taking it up this weekend, & bust out my new sewing machine for the first time in the process. hurrah all round.

you can see a couple of my other purchases from this month over in the
charity shop challenge flickr group. need a reminder of the guidelines? see a couple of posts back, or click here.

the dress is very gorgeous. And it is a good thing that many are buying at the charity shops cos after money will be used for the charity. Many people can benefit what we buy.
