Charity Shop Bargains

While I was checking out the local charity shops for some more linen and cotton sheets for my Eco-Print Workshops, I spotted these:

A lovely pale peachy pink Phase Eight Jacket, for £2.50 in The Salvation Army Shop.  It will fit me nicely once the sleeves are shortened.  The colour isn’t good on me, but its a silk and linen mix, so should dye well.  My plan is to dye it with Woad and then Eco-print it.

I have been experimenting with eco-print on previously dyed silk with some pleasing results.

I also spotted this M&S white cotton blouse for £1.50 and grabbed it without even looking at the size, thinking it would be good to dye or eco-print.  I am rather pleased to say it will fit me, after I take the side seams in and it can replace my very tired white linen shirt.

I am now looking forward to getting the rest of my summer clothes out and finalising my summer wardrobe.  What Charity Shop bargains have you found this week?
