I didn't have much time to go thrifting this week and what thrifting I did to wasn't fantastic. My usual Goodwill store didn't offer up anything of note and the small community yard sale I stopped by Saturday morning before work only yielded a Transformer for my son.
I did make some progress on revitalizing some things that I've had in the stock pile for a while. Two of them are wedding dresses. The first one my sister-in-law found for me at a yardsale. It's from the 1970s and it had some stains on it but I gave it a soaking in oxyclean and soap for a few days and it came out bright white again. I love the high ruffled neck and the relatively simple design.
The other wedding dress I found in the bins at the local Goodwill Outlet. It was heavily stained but I figured that if it didn't come clean I could still use the lace for a project. Have I mentioned how much I love oxyclean? A few days in the soak and it came out good as new. I especially love how soft and delicate the lace is, as well as the color, a lovely antique cream.
Apparently it's my week for lace and the 1970s version of the Victorian era because I also found this blouse on the same goodwill bins trip.
Etsy Shop and I hope that the wedding dresses get a chance for another special day!
