It’s that time again, for a Sew Your Stash update! I’m sharing all my summer sewing projects and how they fit with my newest Sew Your Stash goal – to use more of my sewing patterns. I’m switching my style over to a vintage inspired wardrobe (more on that HERE), so it was a great time to start making some 1940s and 1950s inspired clothing. I made some good progress into using my 300+ sewing patterns!
I was able to use about 7 patterns (which is a lot for just a few months) and go ever each project along with pics in my update video HERE!
I can not wait to keep working on using my patterns as well as my fabric stash! I think my favorite thing I made this summer were the 1940s inspired shorts. They were a last minute idea, but I love them, and am getting so much wear out of them already! The shorts are so comfy to wear and finally used up a piece of denim from my stash.
What is your favorite item shown in the video? I would love to know!
Don’t forget you can join the Sew Your Stash facebook group to share the projects you are making from your stash. Until next time, Happy Sewing!
