My stash reduction seems to be progressing slowly, with a few small pieces being made but it's only been a few days since I've started. I am revisiting some patterns I bought years ago. This outfit called for knits for both the top and bottom. The top required a zip. Perhaps, if I'd sewn it then I would have installed one. But we now know most knits don't require a zip. Also the top is cut like the very popular S4076. I used a sueded cotton for the skirt. I love everything about this outfit. I have about a 1.25yds of this fabric left and will make B4987 (Following caveat #3 of my previous post). This pattern is also out of print  but it also had some great reviews on PatternReview.

so admiring everyone who is committed to stash reduction. i need to index my stash and see what is there and then start using it. but i can't "call" it stash reduction, because i never follow through. Kinda like i have a "nutrition plan" not a "diet"!

You have a very elegant style. And you are beating me solidly by volume out ... smiles.

I'm about to break my fabric diet right now with the Joann's sale! Bravo for your.

Very pretty set, I love that paisley. Using the longer skirt dresses it up, too.

I like this styles as well. The simplicity knit top is one of my favorite. I've made it several times; it never disappoints.
