The Fabric Struggle Continues...
First, let's deal with my fabric piggyness ~ or my "In and Out" totals. I'd already purchased 14 yards before I added an additional 22.5 yards with my Black Friday purchases. *sigh* There are a whole lot of things I could say about that but why? We know fabric is my weakness and some months I'm better at containing the piggyness than others. The total amount of fabric in this month is 36.5 yards. DEFINITELY a month of overabundance.
The only good thing is that my out total is pretty high. Not high enough to cover the abundance but adequate. Part of the reason the output is so high is I precut five garments a couple of weeks back. I discussed that in this post. While I've only sewn three of the garments I precut, once fabric is cut it comes out of inventory...plain and simple. So my out total is 22.5 yards. Just one less purchase and I would have broken even...*sigh* There will be a post on what actually came after the last of the fabric arrives. Yes that's right...there is still more coming...
New out total for the year so far is: 208.25 yds. I know this is the amount of some peoples stashes but honestly this is just a drop in the bucket in my world. There is still an overabundance of fabric in the sewing cave. I'm not feeling like I met my goal to sew primarily from the collection but I will discuss that more in my year end post.
New Additions to the Closet...
I made six garments:
- Blue Gingham Shirt
- McCalls 7817 - Jacquard Jacket
- Cashmerette Pembroke Turtleneck Tunic
- Velvet Deer 'n Doe Dress - coming to the blog soon
- Black Ponte & Lace Jacket - coming to the blog soon
- Cashmerette Rivermont Top - coming to the blog soon
I have two more shirts in border print fabrics cut out that are waiting to be sewn. They will definitely be on the blog next month. I will also have a lot of time to sew during December due to my Winter Break. Some of the garments I make may show up at the end of December. But I'm sure more of them will fall into January 2019 cause when I'm on a sewing tear, I just like to sew.
Anyway, it was a good sewing month and Imma take pride in that! Next up on the blog is the Velvet Deer & Doe dress.
...as always more later!
