Well, this is kind of a different post! A pic of my TBD – to be donated – stack…
Two drivers – one, I went natural grey, really very white hair, and, two, I’ve lost a lot of weight (from a size 14 to size 10). That’s a BIG change!
Really, most of these things in my pile don’t fit me. A couple are colors that don’t suit me.
These two changes, in the space of twelve months, have been weird!
The size thing is really not a challenge. Since I love to sew, I’m happy to sew more stuff that fits me. Ha!
But – I’ve been sewing from my stash for quite a while. Wish I could win the lottery 🙂 and buy lots of fabric and make a new start…
Nonetheless, I’ve been paying attention, mostly to color, because it seems to be the most difficult bugaboo in the past year.
Here is a dress sewn from my stash. In one pic, I used a contrast binding on the sleeve. On the other, hoping to like it better, I removed the contrast and sewed a simple hem.
But – in the end, this print, the colors, do not suit me. And the dress will join my TBD stack. I don’t mind this. Over the past 6 years, since I started my blog, I’ve sewn many more things than I cannot or do not want to wear.
So, I’m just moving on! For now – Coco
