I am pumped to be making a long term plan to diminish my stash, though. I don't even want to estimate the yardage that is stowed away in my sewing room! It falls into 3 main categories: lightweight cotton for summer dresses, skirts and tops, wool for work-style dresses, skirts and trousers and knits for t-shirts and dresses. Of course, I have other miscellaneous cuts, but those 3 categories have to be at least 80% of my hoard. I have/had general plans for each fabric that I have purchased, it's just a matter of matching up fabrics to patterns. I would like to get at least 1 project in a month, but we'll see.
Part 2 of the challenge involves buying less fabric. That shouldn't be too hard at far as the 3 categories above are concerned, but I will need to get some baby fabrics since I plan to make my own cloth diapers and covers. My main focus is sewing up the fabrics and patterns that I have and if I buy more fabric, I'll be ok with that. Hopefully I'll be too busy with the baby to buy more!
My first project is going to be a maternity skirt made from tan corduroy that came to my stash via my grandmother's stash. Since I have almost no bottoms to wear, I need to get moving on the skirt!!!
