    So…did the car come back filled to the brim with goodies? So what kind of fabrics are looking good in the next batch of outfits?

    I would be in there forever! There is a store in Boston called The Garment District. on Fridays they have $1 per pound sales of second hand clothing. hopefully soon i'll be able to get down there and get some old tshirts and knits to upcycle!
