Gotten started!  I have the body and lining cut for a much needed bag, all items including the interfacing and zip are from stash.

I don't think is in any way an award-winning garment, but to add to the numbers, here it is! I needed a new dressing gown for my up-coming hospital stay and I had this fabric which I bought from @Francesca back in April(?) without any clear purpose in mind. The pattern is rehashed from Kwik Sew 3209. It comes with a hood or a funny neckband which I didn't like, so I replaced the hood with a facing. This, however made the neckline too high for me so I had to chop off the top of the zip to lower it. It now has a self-bound edge so that I could enclose the raw edges of the zip. It has in-seam pockets which are most unflattering to my shape but you can't carry anything when on crutches so I shall need them! I have bit of fabric left which might be enough for a top, we shall see.

I think that's gorgeous @Greybird - you'll cheer yourself and everyone else up!   :loveit:
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Entry 3: leggings, stash used 1m

Well it's only busted a smidge over 1m of a lovely thick navy jersey which has been in stash at least 6 months, probably more. Not very exciting, a pair of leggings to my pattern, last used 2015. Ran up really quickly, didn't bother trying on during the process 🙄 I didn't realise until now that the fabric doesn't have much stretch. They'll be ok as an extra layer under gardening joggers or perhaps instead of tights under a dress. They're very tight on the legs & due to the stretch don't reach my waist!!

Entry number 3... the Lisbon cardigan from black jersey crepe ( not the fabric  I wanted to make it in but it’s the only black I had in the stash, it’s to go with the black/ grey checked dress.)
1.5m used

My 3rd item: a boring tank top using 0.75m.

  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

A Maria Denmark Just a Tank in cotton jersey. I wear these as PJ tops. Not very exciting but it will go with my blue patterned PJ bottoms.

I cut out a coatigan this afternoon and the lining part of the Vogue high neck blouse. I need to check that it won't choke me before cutting out the good fabric, I have a feeling it needs to be about 2.5cm looser.

Mine is coming close - just needs the hems sewing by hand.  I've been distracted by frantic knitting for most of the last week...  :wool:

I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Item 2 - same bit of stash - I think it was 3 metres in total.

Just about had enough for this.
