I’m joining in the Stashbusting Sewalong organised by Cation Designs and EmSewCrazy. My pledge is the same as for Karen’s Sewlution, but I’ve had to decide which pieces of fabric I’m going to use and for which pattern.
So here goes….
I loved my Cambie dress last year, and this year plan to make the green/pink print (in stash for 3 months) and cream batik (stash for 9 months).
I haven’t made the Derby dress before, and think it will look good in this Liberty voile (stash 3 months).
The navy and black vintage printed crepe have been in my stash 3 years while I looked for the right pattern. There isn’t enough of either print to make a dress, and I really wanted to make a dress! I think I’ve found it in Simplicity 4072.
2. Trousers and shorts
I haven’t made trousers before, and love the shape of the Colette Juniper. This fine denim has been in my stash for 3 months and was intended for a skirt originally.
The simple shorts (Burda 3/12) are going to be pyjama bottoms – fabric is vintage and in my stash for a year.
I haven’t made this top before, but think it could be a staple if it fits well. I’ve had the flowered fabric for about 2 years, and the black print for 2 months.
Both these skirts are favourites. The green and grey print is vintage (stash 2.5 years), pink (4 months) and blue gabardine (6 months).
And the pledge -
I, Dottie Doodle, commit to using 12 pieces of stash fabric in 2013.
I best get sewing…!
