Garbage can bound!

I should have known from the start that this dress would end up in the garbage can.  Here is all you are going to see of Vogue 9329 - a Marcy Tilton pattern.


There is nothing wrong with the pattern - I will actually sew it up again.  It was the fabric.  I just don't like it!  I purchased it from Girl Charlee and the fabric itself is good quality.  It's just the print that wasn't working for me.  Oh well - you sew and learn!

At least I could save my label.....


Oh well - You can't win them all!  I'm still adding this to the stats though - at least the fabric is now officially out of the stash! 

Latest Stashbustin' Stats:

Yardage for dress = 2.375 yards
YTD yards sewn = 90.05 yards
Remaining yardage to reach 100 yard goal = 9.95 yards

Happy sewing everyone!

The Abstract Bird Dress

I purchased this knit fabric at this year's ASG Sewing Garage Sale.  Doesn't it look like abstract birds?  There was a total of 2 yards for $7.00.


I selected Simplicity 2369 for the pattern - which I've made before.  It's a mock wrap dress.  

I haven't made the long version though, but I think I like it!



Not much else to say about this dress so on with the stashbustin' stats!

Latest Stashbustin' Stats:

Happy sewing everyone!
