Cheap and Cheerful Church Clothes


My girls looked so bright and colorful Sunday I thought I'd get a picture. They thought they'd see what Bossy the cat was catching in the field.

Daisy's dress: $1 from the thrift store.
Clara's shirtdress: bottom dollar clearance on ebay.
Bella's twinset: $1 from the thrift store. Skirt: cut down from her Easter dress.

Cheap and cheerful!

I just discovered your blog the other day, and I love it (I'm also a sewing, thrifting, homeschooling mom)!

This post was sweet but made me sad a little--because thrifting for our kids is all going to change as of today. Do you know anything about the new law, HR 4040, that went into effect on February 10? You can read more about it on my blog. I strongly encourage you and any of your readers who buy your kids' clothes second hand to write to your senators and representatives and ask for an exception to the law for all resellers of children's clothing.

Thanks for your lovely blog!

Anna ,, as always great thrifing and re-purposing. You always are so creative and thinking of new ways to use things and finding great prices and finds.

I love the idea of cutting the dress into a skirt, if it's still good after six girls!

This comment is unrelated to content of this blog entry, but I have bombed, so far, on sending an email, so I thought I'd try this....
I just want to give you the "heads up" in case you didn't know that mrsmeyers.com is discontinuing ironing spray. Now, until tomorrow, they are selling what remains at $2.00 a bottle until it's gone. Thanks for writing about it in the first place!

I thought I recognized Bella's skirt - I loved that dress!

I love the bright colors and the feminine but not fussy look of your girls church clothes!

Delightful!

For the first time ever, I saw a Grace Livingston Hill book at the thrift store yesterday. It would have gone completely unnoticed had I not been reading your blog.

Very smart, especially in these times. Do you find it hard to find the cute things? I usually do.
