Hiya, I haven’t been doing a lot of sewing lately and what I have done sadly hasn’t gone so well. I’ve almost finished a shirtdress but now that it’s 3/4 made I really don’t like the fabric choice, so I’m finding hard to get that last little bit finished. I also began another dress but the fabric frayed like mad and I had to abort mission upon realising some seams needing letting out (causing mass disintegration). Thirdly I started a top – ie. The top I need in my wardrobe, a simple woven black long sleeve top that will be so useful – but am having fitting issues through the bicep. What can I say, I lift heavy.
Ok not true. I am working on a solution for the sleeves though as I was banking on this being a tried and true pattern.
(Ermm don’t even ask what happened to my smarty pants attempt. Just not happening).
Anyway – onto more exciting things. For the March Challenge at The Monthly Stitch you get to vote on which pattern from my stash I will make next. To be honest I am not really wearing many dresses at the moment (stay at home mum admission) but the bulk of my pattern collection is made up of them so here are three for you to choose from.
Simplicity 2406. Top left image, option D – short, sleeveless.

I have fabric for two of the dresses and am really hoping that you don’t choose the third, but I won’t tell you which it is… to be fair.
Please cast your vote and if you’ve made any of these patterns leave me a quick note or post to your blogpost so I can see how they went.
I have to say I’m already loving this challenge – so fun peeking into other peoples stashes and helping them to choose what to make. I love seeing the poll results too and can’t wait to see all the finished garments. Yippee!
