Sewing Resolutions

We’ve reached mid January.  How did that happen? Reaching this significant moment, it’s time to plan my Summer wardrobe.  After half a week of very cold weather, I’m over it. Winter coats, fluffy jumpers, wellington boots … enough already. I want to wear t-shirts, floaty trousers and sun hats.

But first, I have to make them.  Over the years I have gathered a huge stash of fabrics, trimmings and sewing patterns, and while I have half heartedly attacked this stash, this year, I fully intend to make a serious dent in my fabric collection and fill my wardrobe with lovely, hand made, unique Spring and Summer clothes.

So I hereby state, I, after the end of this month, will not buy any more fabric until I have reduced my stash by at least 20%.

Cue massive fabric shopping spree.
