Stash busting with TNT's


I can't quite be a monogamous sewer so there are always a few projects going on behind the scenes.
Item one - another cowboy shirt, this time in stashed Liberty of London Tara with coordinating top-stitching.

Construction wise it's exactly the same as the black one, the fabric choice just gives it a softer feel.

Item two- a Renfrew with a modified cowl drafted by me, rescued from last October's FO box. Made up in some stashed rayon/lyrca knit from

The only change to the pattern is to make the neckline 2" deeper than the V neck point and round out the V a bit.  Then draft a narrower/longer cowl to fit it,  35.5" x 11", cowl folds in half to be 5.5".

To keep the stash busting rolling along I've joined the 2013 Stashbusting sew-a-long hosted by Cindy and Emily.  My pledge was to sew up 12 pieces of stashed fabric during the year.  Not sure if I should count the 3 garments already made or not. ;)

Cindy and Emily came up with the fun idea of giving each month of the year a theme for stash busting.  You can use the theme or just sew up stash in any way you desire.  January's theme is to use up bits of fabric that are less then a yard.  Might be skipping the theme this month unless I get around to the Grainline studio moss mini, that might take less than a yard.
