If you are not a follower of the Monthly Stitch, the challenge for March is Miss Bossy Patterns, where we all chose a selection of patterns we have never used from our stash and put it to the vote which we should make up.
I have many, many unused patterns, but I have narrowed it down to:
2nd choice is:
The Victoria Blazer. So many great versions of this. I particularly love this one by Sew Busy Lizzie and this one by Melizza at Pincushion Treats. I would probably make this in a solid coloured linen – either navy or black, but I have an idea for a little collar embellishment. (I would probably also make the longer length, rather than the cropped version).
Thirdly we have:
The Dakota by Named Patterns. Seeing as I meant to join the sew along last year, and am still displaying the badge as if I did I think it would be a good thing to get this one off my queue. I’d make it in a solid purple ponte knit.
So, I am in your hands now. Please let me know which of these you think I should make up in March. I’m going to try to add a poll – let’s see how that goes – but please feel free to expand on your vote in the comments below.
