Stashbusting sewalong: Sorting out the stash

So I pulled out some of my more summery fabrics in my stash to start planning my stashbusting projects. I have a box full of wools waiting to be turned into skirt etc. but I'm so fed up with this everlasting winter by now I just want to think summery dress thoughts.

Here's a pile of cottons I should try to get rid of. 

From top to bottom:
-Olive green cotton-rayon fabric I bought for a maxi dress
-Blue batik fabric I already decided I'm going to sell as it's the wrong kind of blue for me.
- Gray and white tiny hounds tooth fabric I got form a friend. Would make a lovely 50's style wiggle dress
-A pair of old curtains I got for free. I was planning to make a 50's style summer dress.
- Lingonberry print cotton I bought at a thrift store
-Mexican style cotton also from a thrift store

I'm going to try to use at least 2 of these fabrics before summer. Hopefully more. 

I was thinking about using the lingonberry cotton for this 40s style dress. What do you think?


  1. I think ypu should forget about that dress and send that berry-print fabric to me! Gee, thats pretty!

  2. I think it's just the right style for that print. BTW your blue batik looks like it could suit me ;) (but I already have a pile of summery prints waiting so...)

    1. Well if you're interested in the fabric, I'm selling it at Vintagevaatteiden kirpputori on Facebook :)

  3. That would be so PERFECT!! and definitely look forward to the result

  4. Wow! This fabric will be perfect!!! Dying to see you wearing this home made dress!
