This month's Make A Garment A Month theme is 'April Showers - Stash Flowers'. We are challenged to use one of our oldest stash to make a garment. This is a great idea. As I am a reformed Fabric Hoarder, I still have 2 closets full of fabric stash that I haven't quite used up. This remnant piece of white sparkley boucle/tweed has been in my stash for quite a while:
I only have a bit more than 1 metre of it so it's not enough to make a lot of things. I thought I could make a simple jacket with this stash pattern Simplicity 8850:
I have used this pattern before to make the long and short skirts (see here). I have also made the jacket years ago before I had kids. I had also donated that jacket years ago. I seem to remember that it was a generous fit. I know I should do a muslin since my body has changed so much after having 2 kids, but I'll risk not doing it this time. Let see how things will turn out!
