This Red Fabric
...has been on my shelf for years. I'm not sure what I was planning on using it for but I have more than 3 yards of it (I think I might have been planning on making a vintage style apron but I'm not sure). So I've decided to work it into some projects I've been making. I've found I like it more as a lining fabric than a main fabric.
I used it for this reversible wrap dress and for another pair of the awesome quick change trousers from Handmade Beginnings. I guess these projects were stash busting all around because the gray fabric is another oldie and the plaid is some deliciously soft flannel I found at the thrift store last year. I've been putting April in these pants as often as possible because they are so soft and warm. The wrap dress is a bit long (even though I trimmed about 2.5 inches of the bottom of the pattern) but it has give so it can wait until she is a little taller. I still have a bunch of this fabric left, what to do with it......
