Stash Update and Fabricmart Order

1:59 PM 2 Comments A+ a-

Since the end of the month is drawing near, I thought I would update on my stash busting project. This month I have subtracted 10.5 yards of fabric. However, only 7 yards of that was sewn, 3.5 was pulled to sell in my Etsy shop. Also, I added 9.5 yards of fabric due to a particularly tempting Fabricmart sale... Here are the goods:

These two are strech cottons, the black is for the Jenny pencil skirt from Burda and the white leopard is also for a pencil skirt, based on the outfit below from Pinterest.

By a happy accident, I ordered this teal poly cotton blend to make yet another pencil skirt, however, when it showed up I discovered it was way too light and silky for what I intended. Instead it's becoming a top so I can totally recreate the above outfit!

I'm thinking I'll used the Sorbetto pattern as a base (sans pleat) and the ruffle from the coffee date dress for a little flava...

Finally, these three strech cottons will become dresses, not sure about the patterns yet though. Any ideas?
Not much progress on the stash busting, although I did take out more yards than I brought in this month. Here's hoping next month will be a little better!
Happy Tuesday!

However, you got a nice top and some recess of the fabric stash ... Fabulous!

My stash busting is at an all time low. I think I have a fabric buying addiction. I love your choice of black and white animal print with blue top.
