Even though we're not sewing with a strictly defined theme this week, the stash busting theme does lend itself to some fun community participation opportunities: a stash busting game! We'll be tracking our progress this week at The Sewing Circle, so be sure to check out this thread.
So how does this all work? As a motivation to dive into that stash and get sewing, we're going to award points to our creations sewn THIS WEEK based on these guidelines:
Don't forget to include photos!
At the end of the week, we'll total our points up and see who really tore through their sewing room. And of course, the Top Stash Buster gets a prize. It's all honor system, but I know you all are a trust-worthy crowd.
Ok, let's get sewing!

Fabric bought on ebay a few months ago, vintage 10 points
Yards used 2.5 (it wasn't wide material), call it 12 points
Therefore it's a poor 25 points (although my interfacing was also vintage ... bonus point?)
This is stashbusting because I bought the fabric with no plan in mind and it has been sitting for a few months. The pattern I was given last week by a fabulous lady. More details here.
The photo is terrible because my hubbie doesn't get in until gone 9pm on a Thursday. That's my excuse anyway, I am not photogenic at the best of times.
I am calling this my "doesn't she scrub up well" blouse because it feels a bit like medical scrubs to me for some reason. It does up via a zip on the left seam under my arm.
This is my first ever blouse! I did an FBA but now I'm wondering if I overdid it because it's almost too big (or I am used to wearing off the rack clothes that pull against my larger than average assets...???).
Bring on next week's challenge!
I love your blouse.. the neckline is really pretty and I like the fabric too..
I hate being in pictures too.[try to hide when the camera comes around..yuk..].
But you look great... and the blouse looks great.Enjoy wearing.
I finished up my pants and top for this weeks challenge and just have to get hubbie
to take a picture [and possiably ,just a picture of the garments by themselves.lol] Judy
Thanks Judy for your kind encouragement. I will look forward to seeing a picture of your outfit, last time I joined the challenge I just put a photo of the skirt but I thought I'd be brave this time! I usually hide too.... x
Nice! I love the detail around the neck - is that lace?
Enjoy wearing it on your date! :-)
