I like a pattern that's a fabric miser

I had a smidge under 3 metres of wool.  There are only shreds left.  I have cut out 3 garments:  a dress, a pair of pants, and a top.

My sheath dress takes just over 1 metre.

Thats it.  All of it in one width.

To the right is the top (Vogue 2683).  I cut it single layer from what was left after I cut out the pants (.75 metre).  The spaces at lower left and in the middle are for the other side piece and back piece, respectively.

I've got to get sewing now.


  1. That is definitely getting your money's worth!

  2. jealous...jealous...jealous...*sigh* Okay I'm also nosey and can't wait to see the new pieces.
