Another 2 meters gone...

A very slinky ITY  (Fabworks) dress, the 90s dress from  Ellie and Mac. I have to say the back skirt piece isn’t drafted right for the lower shaped back bodice. Emailed them but just got a fudged answer saying when the pattern is updated that will change... no good to me!

I've just ordered a sample for some lining to match some raincoat fabric. Frustratingly this means the raincoat, though a stashbust, will actually only break even in terms of numbers. How annoying!

Well I'm going to join in this one! After promising myself that I wasn't going to buy any more fabric for a long time, I had a bit of a splurge  :|
And even worse, when I got the fabric home, I can't fit it in my cupboard  :o I use those sets of wire-basket drawers from IKEA to store my fabric and it has reached critical... there's absolutely no way to get the fabric in without going full Marie Kondo. So, I need to seriously use some of that fabric up!!
No idea of how many metres I have... I don't WANT to know!!  :S

A genuine stash bust piece. A short sleeve t shirt made from the remnants of my DH pyjama top fabric. It was extra wide so I have got his T and mine out of 2m.

Well, I finished the first one!!  I used 2 remnants which have been in the stash for so long I can't remember.  The fabric is a sort of scuba, but it creases.  Nice textures though.  I had to mix the two, as one wouldn't have been enough.

I used New Look 6230, and cut a size 16.  It's a tad snug, but I'm not expecting to wear much under it, so it's fine.

No issues really, just that the neck seems a bit square.  I thought it was me, but then I sewed the next one, and that was the same.

I like that.  The mix of fabrics looks pre-planned rather forced, well done.

@b15erk, love the textures of the fabric and how they go well together.

I am going to Imanuels tomorrow. I will be buying fabric, meters of the stuff!

Hopefully I will only buy the curtain fabric I am going for :S

Also hopefully I will get the damned curtains made ASAP, which will conveniently get rid of metres of already owned lining.

Lovely morning at Immanuels.

The church always delivers. Fabric for new curtains, a Roman blind, a tablecloth and something to recover two chairs from the £1 room.

DD got about 6m of dress fabric but I won’t add them to my stash total even though I’ll be making them up.

Cut another white top out!  BurdaStyle Model 126 02/2013 BurdaStyle126 02/2013

I've cut it from two diagonal remnants which have been in the stash forever, so I've had to be a bit creative.

Not sure how to assess how much fabric I'm using, any suggestions?  I sometimes buy fabric as remnants, for unknown future projects, and they are often weirdly shaped.

I was going by the fabric requirements on the envelope, unless I thought I was being very thrifty with my cutting.

Another 3.5 mtrs de-stashed, this is rounded up, as I may not be able to use the off cuts for anything but craft projects

I like that jacket. I have been meaning to buy that pattern for ages now - perhaps now is the time!
