It's been sitting in the stash for over a year. Yesterday I found the most beautiful corduroy that would work perfectly for a jacket pattern that had been sitting here for about two years. Even better, the lining matches the corduroy! Yes! It was a great idea to buy it--not feeling any guilt now. Keeping a stash does pay off. These two were made for each other.
The pattern is still out there if you want to see it: http://www.favoritethings.net/patterns/wearables/uptown_coat
