Yep, I was on a hippie Faerie binge. Heres another piece of faerie Clothing i made:

I dont think Lauren was quite ready for that photo!! haha

So, i took a nightie from a table top sale, ( I have no idea what these are called in America...If there called the same, please feel free to laugh!!)
And some sleeves from an old jumper/sweater, I turned the sleeves upside down and sewn button holes in them, with buttons on the straps of the dress, so you can remove them if its warm, and some pretty leaves a round the bust Smiley Not a major Recon, but enough!!
Another Photie:

I think you're looking for "garage sale."  You went to someone's house and bought up their old things for cheap?

PS - Your stuff rocks. Those sleeve things are my fav.

They're called "garage sales" or "yard sales", or if you went to a place and the tables where there and people rent them those are "jocky lots" where I am. not sure why though! lol
Personally I think table top sales are a better descriptive name!
Your outfit is adorable I LOVE the concept of the button off sleeves! I HAVE to have sleeves even if it's warm out so this would be the perfect way to do it! Thanks for the idea!

Yes, Table-Top seems a little more fitting than Jockey-Lots, how bizarre! haha, yes i love sleeves too, and was thinking of doing this to all my strap tops, before i realised it was a little extreme. lol

So it's a whole bunch of people selling lots of things in a big room?  Kinda sounds like a mix between a bazaar and a flea market.
