When you stash too long...

So you stashed a great piece of fabric waiting until you found just the right pattern/design... the right season... completion of the holiday gifts... the dress you needed for a wedding was done... the repairs and needs of other family members... the right job so you wouldn't make something you'd never wear anyway...

And now -- you're not seeing that fabric around anymore! Uh oh. Did you miss the window of fashion opportunity? If you sew it up - fast - will you be a fashion "don't"? Or still right in style having adapted an aged piece to a current fashion? Is it old enough that you can call it vintage?

Or do you just relegate it back to the stash and wait to see it coming back "in" again and be ahead of the curve?

Seriously, what do you do? I have a piece at least 15 yrs. old that will be right in style right now, but a couple of others that SHOULD have been made last year... now those are the really tricky ones!

What would you do?
