A Dress Four Years in the Making - Stash Busting Challenge!

 In 2007, I cut out this pattern with some fabulous orange fabric...
 And I FINALLY put it together this past weekend!  I said, "Ok, dress, it's you or me.  And I want to wear you like whoa." 

I also wanted to make something that I didn't have to wait til summer to wear.  I have this lovely sweater which I never wear because I got bleach on the sleeve....

And I just got this pattern and had enough butterscotch colored fabric to eek out a skirt...

 Voila!  A new outfit that I love.

The skirt pattern was amazingly easy to put together and adjust - I love the pleats in the back.  It makes me feel like there is a party happening when I walk.

Overall, I am extremely pleased with my efforts this week!  I am just itching for the weather to get warmer so I can break out some of these dresses.  Stay warm where you are, friends!!


  1. FABULOUS! I love both outfits!! I love the sweater refashion too! There's a few tops and sweaters I need to do that too! And I agree, warm weather where are you hiding? ;-)

  2. The dress, skirt and sweater are all lovely! I especially like how you teamed the green and white stripe sweater with a mustard skirt- gorgeous combo!
