Help! April Challenge Vote!

Hi everyone,

I’m a bit late joining in this month’s Monthly Stitch challenge but the challenge is to ask readers to vote which unused, stashed pattern and which fabric to use out of three choices. What a great idea for a challenge because I love looking after people’s sewing options! This has come at the perfect time for me too as I have a lot going on with uni and moving house and I don’t have a lot of time for sewing at the minute so having just one project decided by you would really help me… So what do you think? Please vote by leaving a comment below or over on Instagram

1. I have some of this amazing gingham and floral stretch cotton from Sew Me Sunshine which I was going to use to make some Sew Over It Ultimate Trousers. I fancy something nice and summery so I was going to aim for a cropped version. Those of you who read often will know this would be a huge challenge for me as I never sew trousers…

2. The second option is Cotton and Chalk’s Lily Dress. I’m trying to work on my summer wardrobe and I think a maxi version of this will be great for my holidays. I’m in two minds about the fabric. I can either use Pink flying birds viscose (the fabric is a really soft pink which doesn’t translate too well on photos) or Blue with Pink Flowers both from Adam Ross. What do you think?

3. I was going to attempt the Tilly and the Buttons Joni Dress from the New Book Stretch, another challenge as I’m not sure about the neckline (it looks a bit complicated) but a vote might just push me to attempt it! I planned to make it in this amazing Parrot jungle Jersey from Sew Me Sunshine.

Please let me know what you think and I’ll get moving with it and post it on The Monthly Stitch by the end of the month. ☺

  1. I would go with anything but the Lily! I made it, and it was a bit of a disaster. The armholes were too low, and the bodice wouldn’t sit right. It ended up in the recycling bag. If you pick it, I would definitely recommend toileing the bodice. Good luck!
