A Few New Pieces of Clothing

As easy as it is for me to have a fabric stash for quilting, I can't stockpile fabric for clothing.   I have no problem continuing to buy more fabric for 'that someday quilt', but I cannot just keep buying fabric to make clothes.  I have no idea why... it is obviously a serious flaw in my character that doesn't allow my to buy copious amounts of knits and wools and fleece.

When a flyer came this weekend for a great fabric sale on knits next month, I got busy sewing up the fabric I had already purchased so I could justify going and getting more.  

I made 4 pairs of pajama pants, 1 top (not shown) and a cute skirt.  

The pajama/lounge pants are really fun.  Look close, one pair shows bras all over it.   I live in 'cottage country' and we grew up with a camp that had an outhouse, so I have a pair with outhouses all over it.   How cool is that?  The last pair is some fabric my mom gave me, and it is very slippery and slinky, I love that feel.

I have 2 more pieces to use up, but think I will borrow a different pattern(s) and perhaps make a skirt and blouse set.  
Here are the pictures.  Don't you think I can now go and buy some fabric for my spring/summer wardrobe?

Anytime you use stash, you should reward yourself by buying more fabric!
