I’m still following my use 3 pieces of fabric to buy 1 rule I set in place a while ago because my sewing storage space is now reduced to 2 medium storage bins in the closet, 2 filing boxes for patterns and one small sterilite 3 drawer bin for notions and tools. My dressform is currently filling a corner of our living room so I need to keep her neat and tidy for when we have people over.
Anywho, back to the fabrics. I have 3 yards of red jersey and of navy jersey that will come in handy. I also have 1.5 yards of black Italian wool that I think would make a good pencil skirt to fall into the “office wear” category that I desperately need to fill. I have some Indonesian batik that my father brought home from a recent trip that needs to get used up, I might use this to make one of the dresses for one of the weddings this fall (one is a beach wedding) . Once I get through these I’ll go shopping for more but I really need to move through this stash.
I’d really like to get to a point where no fabric stays in my closet for more than one season. I realize this is extremely optimistic.
