More indecision


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?
