Here are al the fabrics I want to sew up this summer. (Plus a couple of tops from last year that I want to work with whatever I make.) Is it all going to happen? Probably not.
A few pieces I’ve already decided on and cut out: a Simplicity 3466 cowlneck blouse (previously made here) in cinnamon cotton voile, the Burda over-shirt in moss green poplin (although this piece of fabric kept insisting that it wanted to be pants. It might have been right). I also cut out the Burda patch pocket skirt in olive twill, and it’s even half sewed up!
But lots of pieces I can’t decide on. The green linen has been made (in my mind) into flowing pants, several different dresses, and a top. The charcoal cotton could be a blouse or a skirt. The ITY print was supposed to be a dress and now I think will be a straight skirt. Which leaves 2 yards left to do something with.
How do you decide what to make from a piece of fabric? Do you buy fabrics with a project in mind or decide on a pattern later? How often do you change your mind before settling on a project?
