Mmm...caloric intake

I usually talk my husband into taking me on my fabric excursions by saying I need things for my store.  However, he's wised up and noticed I've been doing a lot more hoarding lately.  So, I have been more or less 'challenged' to get through a 1/4 of my stash, before purchasing even an inch more.  This is turning out to be a trickier task than I anticipated, since I have a pretty significant amount of fabric and two stay home kids.    I have until the first week of July to achieve this, so we'll see.  Aside from the first one, which is that super simple Hilary Duff, all patterns are either vintage or my own.  Blah blah blah, here is what I have been able to stitch up this week.  I wish I could keep one of them, but alas that's against yet another challenge.  Blast my need to prove my willpower!

Black & Grey herringbone with black sleeve and collar mini shift dress





Black 60's-inspired A-Line dress with plaid front inset and foldover collar








Mocha and green zebra faux wrap dress, with green topstitching throughout.  It's Safari Chic, baby!






60's styled Mod A-Line dress with shape-flattering angled side insets and asym. collar






60's-inspired princess seamed A-Line with black and white mod center panel







Some outfits may look a bit "perky".  Betty (my inanimate assistant) recently had a boob job.  She think's she's hot.  Hopefully when she gets over herself, she'll help me get shots of the rest of the stuff I have ready.  I'm too tired right now.

I know, I love the sleeves too.  I like the casual feel of it being a little bunched up.  Oh, and I didn't try that one on because it still needs a zipper.  hehe

You're putting your stash to very good use. They all look amazing. I'd say the second one is my favorite, the colors just knock me out.

Oh wow! You don't need to go shopping ever again! Well, not at the clothing store anyway. The cloth you make are so cool and fit perfectly.
I think you deserve to buy more fabric now, even if you haven't got through 1/4 of the stash yet. You've used it all really well.
