Fabric Totals ~
Fabric accumulation is always a challenge for me since I LOVE it sooooooo much! I knew I was going to blow my totals up in June because - Sew Camp!!! I thought that the fabric I purchased in May would have been used for the Event dresses. However, I bought some that I ended up not using so that increased my unused totals...anyway here are the totals by month.
In - 30.5 yards
Out - 17 yards
In - 74.75 yards
(This was a combination of birthday fabric buys and Sew Camp purchases)
Out - 19 yards
YTD In: 246 yards
YTD Out: 180.5 yards
At the mid-point of the year I have 65.5 more yards in than out. So much for that balancing act in April! However, I still have to do my yearly donation to the high school and I know I won't be purchasing fabric in July & August. I'd like to make it all the way through to the end of September but I will see.
I'm pretty fabric satisfied right now and just want to sew all the things. My wardrobe is changing again due to weight, health, and age situations. I will be doing a clothing donation at the end of the summer when I know what I wore and didn't wear this year.
My sewing list for the rest of the summer is calling my name. We will see what fabrics actually make it from flat fold and into my closet!
Next up on the blog is the Dover Maxidress. Spoiler Alert: I love it and will hopefully make another before the summer is over!
...as always more later!
