Scrimping and saving, ranting and raving. Past retirement age but still working, permanently knackered. Trying to manage on a reduced wage, looking forward to the next dream.

What fun! A million years ago my happiest job was sewing in a theatrical costumes shop....I was just checking the prices of these dresses on line...oh my word... $$££!!!!Please let us know what the frugal but loving versions cost.
Jill, I paid £25 for the fabric, I will get at least 4, maybe 5 dresses from this. There will be lots of the cape fabric left so it's worked out at around £6 per dress.
Sue... I just realized that I may have appeared rude by asking....didn't mean to be.As a sewer and pensioner I just could couldn't believe what I saw when I went to check out the dresses. As there are no small ones in my sphere anymore so I lag behind in knowing what the latest things are...the last little ones costumes I made were all mermaids and nija turtles stuffed with old tights!Despite the ravely fabric I hope this is enjoyable for you.I especially seeing them twirl about I their new dresses!
You weren't at all rude JillI was going to put the costings up when I post the finished pics.
