The Bishop Method of Clothing Construction


I got The Bishop Method of Clothing Construction book from 1959 for $2. I didn’t need it. But I found the “trimming details for the quality look” pages to be inspiring. I love nice details. Here are some of my favorites:


I liked the details around the buttonholes.


And these collar details are so cute.


I love these buttonholes made from tubing.


These bow details are cute.


I like the graphic look of the added felt to the dress.


The cut out parts on the collar were interesting. And I love the button pattern created on the collar.

Things I Didn’t Buy 76


I thought this “Good Cooks Never Lack Friends” embroidered art was very cute (and very true).


And although this isn’t really my style, I appreciate the effort it must have taken to create this embroidered flower art piece.


I thought this glass flower art was quite interesting.


This 1970s picture was quite cute.


And I really liked this coffee pot.

Things I Didn’t Buy 75


I liked this vintage Brother sewing machine.


And it had a cute tin to go with it.


I thought this box was pretty cute.


I loved the cover of this old book.


And I liked these yellow gloves…but I wouldn’t have a reason to wear them.

Thrifted for $26.98


I got this awesome tennis top for $7.99. It has one pocket (for an extra tennis ball for serving). I love the simple geometric design on the front. I also got a pair of jeans for $4.


I got this Banana Republic navy blazer for $6.99. I used to have a blazer similar to this one—except it was black and a much cheaper version of it. I wore it until I had to throw it away since it was looking pretty ratty. So I was pleased to finally have a replacement for it.


And I got this leather skirt for $5. I would never buy a leather skirt new because they’re so expensive, but I couldn’t resist it at such a low price. And I like the stitching detail on it as well.


I love this mug. I like the simple design, the white glaze on the rough clay—so pretty. This was 50 cents.



And this cute Japanese animal mug was also 50 cents.


I got this white bowl for $1.


Finally, I got four cds for $1. Some blast from the past music.
