Grandma's Curtains?..

Espirit top: $1.00 from Salvation Army
Vintage skirt: $3.99 from Salvation Army
Olsenboye shoes: $12.99 from Plato's Closet

Total look: $16.98

This is a vintage skirt that I found from the Salvation Army a few weeks ago. I liked the cute novelty print on the skirt, but a friend of mine asked if the skirt was made from curtains..lol. I don't know if the skirt was made from grandma's curtains or not, but I still think that it is a cute 50's skirt. I will be putting this item up for sale on Ebay soon if you are interested in owning it! 
I want to learn how to make my own 50's skirts soon! I have never sewn before, and I am always intimidated by it, but there are so many fun skirts I could be making. I am going to be saving to get the parts that I need for my sewing machine so that I can try to teach myself. I have some really cute 50's patterns that I found at an antique shop, now to make them!

  1. Nice outfit! I totally love the vintage skirt! Btw, I came across your site through GFC bloghop. ;)

  2. I love your skirt! It's so pretty. I wish I could make curtains out of that skirt.

    You got some great thrift prices at Salvation Army. The Salvation Army by me is really expensive :(

  3. So cute! I love prints like this. And grandma's curtains/couches always make a cute outfit :) My Hubby teases me about loving tapestry prints.

  4. That skirt is so adorable! What a great deal!


  5. Now I am a thrift shopper, true. But I am not into Vintage stuff. I think it is because I lived it. Once I visited my Aunt while she lived in San Diego. I told her about Knotts Berry Farm having an old village in it and how cleaver and authentic it was. She just claimed, "Oh I will never go see that stuff, because it isn't fun. That is how I lived years ago!" I think that is how I am with vintage stuff. I want today's styles and more and more of them, for a song, of course. You do your vintage and I'll do the cool stuff, your generation has. LOL Am I silly? Maybe. Do I care? Nope. We all have our various interests and various tastes and various style. That is what is so cool about you! That is what is cool about blogs.

  6. The print on this skirt is so funky & unique. Great finds! Thanks for linking up for Real Girl Style!

  7. i'm digging the novelty skirt too. the whole outfit is spot on dear 1950's you! i'm so bad at sewing i sent my machine to my mom last year. she's a sewing wizard.

  8. That skirt is adorable, and it looks great with those shoes. I love a great 50s-style skirt!

  9. Okay, I'm obsessed over that skirt! So flattering.
