I sewed 5 tango dresses the last few weeks. Yes 5!
There is one of them in action.😉
I used to be a pants girl, with my wardrobe filled with jeans, pants and shorts. But since the last few years, I cleared out a lot of those pants to give the space for dresses.
I even thought about doing a 365 days dress project.
Well, here are two new additions to my dress collection to make the winter warm and stylish.
I’m the kind of person who go out of control when shopping, but at the same time, too much stuff sitting unused gives me anxiety…
So before I go shop for my winter fabrics, I decided to do a stock take of my current stash, and plan a use for each of them.
Red white stripes- I have 3 meters. Will make a casual long sleeved dress with half of it, and the rest will stack away for spring/summer.
Chevron- 3-4 meters. Also have in mind a simple pull-over dress for this fabric. And it would be a fun print for bikinis too.
Feathers- Tango dress!
Burgundy chiffon- Tango skirt? Not sure
Daisy silk- This will have to wait until summer to turn in to a dress
Pink stripes- I bought this having in mind to make a shirt, we will see.
Green nets- This is going to be a long sleeved dress, I already have the design in mind.
Light Fabrics 2
Shimmer see through white- Tango dress, but don’t know the design yet
Green silk plaid- Definitely a shirt.
Brownish silk- A dress, but not sure about the design yet.
Left- Beautiful silk, positioning pattern, don’t know what to do yet.
Right- Lace, definitely only for tango you would see me in fuchsia lace…
Blue- Making a pair of wide legged pants
Green- Probably dress, but haven’t decided on the design
Green plaid- only have 1 meter, probably a skirt.
Unbelievably beautiful golden pleated fabric!
I bought this when I first started sewing, still haven’t figured out a good use for it!
That’s all! Hopefully I can sew through some of this and clear space for some winter shopping soon!
