I’ve decided to take part in the Pattern Stash Busting contest on PatternReview.com, which requires you to make as many projects as you can from patterns that you’ve owned for 6 months or more. I’m also using stash fabrics for these projects, which will be all kinds of WIN in the stashbusting department.

The projects I have in mind to create are:

Vogue 2945 – with this brown/red digital abstract print.

Burda 6842 – with a lightweight brown wool – I will create a jacket and either pants or skirt from this. Haven’t picked the pants pattern yet, but I have lots to choose from.

McCalls M6711, view B – a simple tank top for wearing under suit jackets, in a shocking bright pink crepe. I might make the jacket later, too.

Cake Patterns Hummingbird peplum top & skirt – I am going to make the skirt, because peplum tops and me don’t mix. I have a cool digital print ponte knit in brown/black/paprika to do this with. (Technically I have only owned this pattern since the mid-fall, but it was in a friend’s stash before then, and I’m not really in this to win this anyways).

Burda Kids 9419 – A button-up shirt in Irish leprechaun green for my son

McCalls 4593 – probably view C, in a light brown/camel coloured corduroy with an inset of gabardine for texture.
