Back in January I decided to use the Stash Shrinker from SewJourners.
I decided to have a go with it and downloaded the spreadsheet template to use.
Rather than just start purely in 2018, I decided I would be more honest
with myself if I went back to late December where I stopped sewing
gifts/charity items and started sewing for me and also bought a big batch of fabrics from a local roll end shop.
I have sewn 28 items and sewn up an amazing 52 metres of fabric which I am really happy about.
This was done btween 23rd December 2017 and 16th March 2018.
Not everything worked wonderfully, some things haven't been worn yet, others were too tight or shrank in the wash but most of the items worked out pretty well and I'm pleased with them.
As you can see I've really upped the brown section of my wardrobe which was lacking rather and is one of my two key neutrals (the other being navy).
My SWAP this year is going to contain brown and teal! With ivory probably being the 3rd colour.
I'm not quite ready to rethread the machines, as I want to make some more brown trousers and refine the fit just a little more.
I wonder what the next 50 metres is going to look like?
