Miss Bossy Is Back!

Happy almost-April friends!

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!

Hello internet!

I picked it up at Spotlight, probably on clearance – of course – and is a lovely fleece backed heavy knit.
