"I'm a back-of-the-envelope person - I didn't even know what "stash" meant! And my burning question for you stashers is how do you know how much to buy? I used to sit in the store and flip through catalogs, then walk around with the envelope getting supplies. But now I see that's not satisfactory when the craving hits and I can't get to the store. On my way to stashing!"So, all you stashers and collectors - How do you know how much to buy? For me, I know that generally a simple knit top takes about a yard, a skirt a little more and pants generally 2. I often end up either overbuying, or with not quite enough because I've decided that the fabric that I thought I wanted to make a blouse out of suddenly screamed dress to me. That's when we get creative with layouts... I've seen a cool set of cards that help you decide how much to buy based on your size and the general style of garment you think you will make from the fabric, but I've never used them. You can check them out here.
And in other news - Logan's Valentine pants are all done!
Next up is the matching skirt for Myra. I'm using the twirler skirt pattern that I drafted for her, but adding the cute heart shaped pockets from Ottobre 01/2009-19 - the Herrta skirt. It's gonna be cute!
