I need your vote for The Monthly Stitch’s March Miss Bossy Patterns challenge. We need to select a pattern from our ‘stash’ that has never been sewn (by us) and, yup you guessed it, finally sew it!! But, as an added twist, we need to have you nice folks boss us around as to which pattern to sew.
Welllll, I have to say, this was far more challenging than originally thought. I had much difficulty reducing the enormous pile of patterns, even with the help of our gracious and talented Kitty.
Alas, after much debate, I wanted to make sure the vote was on a level playing field, so I selected 4 Dress patterns that have similar lines. They all have some kind of gathered and/or drape neckline bodice, a fuller skirt of varying widths and a choice of sleeves. Fabrics for each pattern correspond, so I selected 4 fabrics, also from my growing stash, and paired it with a pattern. All of the fabrics have similarities, although they are different types. They are in the same colour palette, are lightweight and drape very well.
So, tell me what you think. Vote your heart out! Thank you for your help Jedi Masters.
And, here are the pattern choices:
