The Monthly Stitch Miss Bossy Patterns March Challenge

There is a twist on the March challenge over at The Monthly Stitch and I need your help! The normal process is for the collective to vote on the theme then stitch whatever theme the majority chose. I haven’t had a chance to complete any challenges since my Date Night dress entry for the Frocktober Challenge but that hasn’t stopped me from cutting out the dresses and getting them ready to stitch.

This month requires each sewist to have their blog readers choose between three patterns in their stash that are new to them. I have A LOT of patterns I haven’t sewn but actually want to complete one of my never sewn “hibernating” projects so my March Monthly Stitch entry will be one of the following. Please post a comment and let me know which one you think I should stitch up for the challenge and the pattern with the most votes will be my entry!

First up is Vintage Pattern 9387 which is a sleeveless, princess seamed dress that I originally intended to make for the September Vintage Patterns Challenge. I chose an emerald green marbled fabric and have all the pieces cut and ready to sew.

The second option is the Licorice dress from Colette Patterns Sewing Handbook and was supposed to be my November From a Sewing Book Challenge entry. The fabric is the lovely Liberty of London Tana Lawn Alma in black and red. This one is also cut and ready to sew.

The final option is Simplicity 2017 which is a sleeveless shift dress with a square yoke. The fabric was a prize from Anneke of Annette Tirette.  This fabric is an African wax print and should suit the pattern quite nicely!

  1. Thanks for voting on my Miss Bossy poll! Yours was a difficult decision! I love that African wax print but that liberty lawn and the liquorice dress also are gorgeous. In the end, I love liquorice too much nit to vote for a dress named after it 🙂

    • Thanks! I love them all and one of resolutions this year was to work on my “startitis”! As you can tell, I love to shop for fabric and collect patterns but getting it converted to an actual dress is another story. Hopefully this challenge will get me in gear. I wear dresses often especially in the spring and summer so getting these finished would be wonderful!

  2. So hard to choose just 1, they are all nice. Can’t wait to see which dress wins.

  3. Great choices, I decided on the vintage one, but would love to see any of them completed. I finally decided the vintage green one, perfect fro St Pattys Day.

    • Good point about St Patty’s day. My last name is Sullivan and all my kids have Irish names so this is a big holiday for us. My youngest (16) is Patrick and when he was young he thought the day was named for him and the party meant presents!

  4. I voted for the simplicity. I love fabric and think the simple lines are a good way to show case it.
