Over on The Monthly Stitch Miss Bossy has come back around with ideas for our April makes – and I need your help to choose! I’ve found three stash patterns (all PDFs I bought but haven’t made!) and three stash fabrics to go with them, but you get to choose what I sew. This is what I have:
The Itch to Stitch Bonn shirt with a William Morris print cotton.
The Seamwork Arden in a bright glasses print floaty polyester.
Or the Seamwork Lilliana in a bright af tartan.
So, what does everyone think I should make?? Vote below!
I have been working on just a couple of things this week. One is a gift for my best friend’s birthday gift – hand spun hand knit socks! She requested more after the last pair of hand knits, and this time I went to hand spun as well.
My Indie Royalty look is a lazy homage to my favourite lady detective, Ms Phryne Fisher. She wears a lot of fantastic oversize coats throughout the series, and that was the beginning of my outfit. Then a top, and pants to go – because how is a lady detective expected to chase down dastardly criminals wearing a dress?!
So, IPM is a month late this year, and while it may have thrown off my form for the Tour de Fleece (I’ve spun NOTHING) I have had a great time sewing. Challenge one didn’t eventuate due to my not being careful enough with pattern sizing (we will rectify that later!), but challenge two has me rather happy!
The June challenge for The Monthly Stitch was exactly what I had hoped it would be – I’ve had this bird fabric sitting in my stash for AGES (and I have it in another colour too!) and I was rather hoping I would get a chance to use it! I picked it up at Spotlight, probably on clearance – of course – and is a lovely fleece backed heavy knit.
