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.
