A new thrift store not far from our house, I just noticed, has tons of Indian clothing. Lots of silks, scarves, beads, awesome stuff, very inspiring. I bought this huge orange floral scarf there the other day and thought I'd try to make a quick hippie top for myself. It's very pouffy. I used my new method of just keep sewing with elastic thread in the bobbin until it fits somewhat. Not the most flattering shirt I own but very instant gratification.
also from the thrift store, an ice cream maker!
