I have over 100 patterns (maybe 120?). Tops and Dresses galore! I love dresses! I need new tops!!!! I realized that I have no (ZERO) printed tops in my current wardrobe except for 2 striped tops, a striped cardigan and a polka dot top. Oy! I'm thinking that's why Butterick 4132 just isn't sitting well with me. I think I'm afraid of it. I think my husband is meh on the print because I'm apparently meh on prints.
I ordered 20+ yards of fabric today from FM. Sigh.
They had wool for $5.99 - I got chocolate wool crepe(!). And I got some suiting in wool blend and rayon. And I got lining for my daughter's dress. I got rayon challis and linen-look rayon. I got some houndstooth(!).
I feel like I have an obscene amount of fabric for someone who has been at this for 2 months (maybe 70 yards including my latest FM purchase).
I am DONE. DONE. DONE. buying any fabric or patterns. I know it'll be hard. I will have to stop logging into Fabric Mart daily to see what they have on sale. I know.
I plan to catalog my fabric this week. I need to be able to easily know what I have on hand. Current stash:
