So what do you see?
I see a bargain!
This lovely dress was a find at Goodwill for $5.99.
But I didn't see a dress.
I saw seven black frog closures, a zipper (well you can't see that because it's on the other side:), and lining for a bodice that is being made.
Yup, this dress resulted in frog closures for future projects. These frog closures sell for about $3.50 each. The zipper sells for a couple of dollars. The fabric for lining the pagoda sleeves of my bodice would have cost a about $5. So for $5.99 I got about $35 in supplies.
The best part is that the money spent on the dress is helping others:).
