When I read that the January stashbusting challenge is to use bits that are less than a yard, this was the pattern I thought of. I know it says the contrast fabric needs to be about 1 1/4 yards. I usually find when I am making Colette patterns that I don’t use as much fabric as they say, and luckily that was the case here as I had way less.
The result – three more stash items busted – the tattoo print cotton, the black cotton poplin (still have a couple of metres left of this) and myMacaron pattern. And a comfy practical dress with pockets that I can get away with wearing for work. I call that a success.
Blogged here , if you’re interested.
Tattoo print cotton, black cotton poplin, both from stash.
