So, here we are. One quarter of the way through 2016. Where has that even gone?! I've been thinking a lot about my 2016 goals and figured it was about time I had a little round-up to see where I'm up to. One of the things I've really not done so well on thus far is the "not buying fabric until I've used my stash".

So, this is my current fabric stash. (There are a couple of things stored which I haven't added to the photo, as I am saving them for something special, or I have decided I won't be using them for anything after all, so will get rid or use for toiles).
So, because 1) I can't draw for toffee and 2) I am not one of those organised people who does diagrams of what they're going to make next, I've a few ideas for some of these but most of the time I just choose a fabric I like the look of and decide what to make with it.
Some of the fabrics I do have specific ideas for, like (002) and (003) are going to be combined to make a version of this Chi Chi dress, and I've plans for another Butterick B5882 with the border print fabric (001).
I've ordered some orange ric rac to finish off (004) which I want to turn into a buttoned pinafore dress, similar to this.
The Cath Kidston ones are all a canvas / cotton mix, so being heavier than regular cotton means they'll all probably end up being a variation on this dress.
Aside from those ideas, though, I guess I'll just work my way through what I have and see what they become. Any suggestions?
