This is the fabric that made me give in and join Summer Stashbust 2014.
I suck at diets - the fabric AND food varieties. I also was very hesitant to join because fabric shopping has basically been therapeutic for me. And let's face it, there's been enough shit going on in my life that I need all of the therapy I can get :)
Well, enter this fabric. I picked it up on a recent trip to Vogue Fabrics. I saw it across the room, hanging in the remnant section. It was beautiful. It spoke to me. I knew right away that it wanted to be made into an amazing summer dress. I could see it in my mind. I swooped in, snatched it up and brought it home.
And forgot about it.
I can't believe I did that, but I completely forgot about it. I only came across it when hunting for another fabric I purchased on that excursion for a project.

Something needs to change, and I think it's best if I at least try out this stash diet. Can't fail if I don't try!
I also found out that I can still go to the fabric store and still get the "therapeutic" benefits, just by purchasing thread or patterns or other things to help me work through the stash. It's just the act of going that does it for me.
I will say that all bets are off if a certain fabric that I've been eying up at Mood for months now goes on sale (I'm looking at you Ralph Lauren blue paisley silk chiffon). But until then, let the stash busting commence!
