Thrifty Thursdays: a whale of a wale

Nearly three yards of wide (veeerrry wide) wale cord for $5.  Nom.

I love all things late 60's and 70's so I'm pretty excited about this find.  Now I just need to make it into pants and we shall live happily every after.

Thrifty tip: When buying fabrics at thrift shops unfold as much as you can to see if there are any worn spots, holes, stains, or fold lines.  Sometimes when a piece of fabric is folded for a long period of time you will see discoloration on the outer portion or a discolored line where a fold has been.

Til next time!
