Miss Bossy Patterns: The winner

Thank you to everyone who bossed me around 🙂

Vogue 1317 took a big lead early before the Lekala “Shake that Tail Feather” skirt caught up quickly.

Unfortunately it was never closer than 2 votes and the Vogue dress (which has been high on my list for ages) will finally be sewn in March.

Keep a look out for that skirt though, I still really want one and I’m sure it will pop up here sometime soon 😉

If you are instereted in trying a Lekala pattern I think there is still 1 or 2 days left of their sale, all patterns at $1.49 so get on over there.

Are you sewing along with us this month on The Monthly Stitch? It’s not too late to get a vote up on your own blog or ask us on the TMS Facebook page, we’d love to boss you around too!

Miss Bossy Patterns

Last month on The Monthly Stitch we put the March challenge up for community vote:

The winner? Pattern Stashbusting! Use a pattern that’s been in your stash that you’ve never used.

It won easily…far too easily.

So we called in the help of Miss Bossy Patterns:

Miss Bossy Patterns challenged the Collective to select unused patterns from their stash (3 or more) and ask the community and their readers to vote, the winning pattern is to be sewn up for March.

I’ve been looking through my short list (which isn’t very short) and digging through my filing cabinet and finally made a selection. Here are my options:

First up is Vogue 1317, a Ralph Rucci pattern:

This dress has been on my short list for a while but I wasn’t sure about fabric – and then I discovered double knit (one of the suggested fabrics) and shortly after found some in the perfect fuchsia!

Second is the the super cute Reglisse by Deer & Doe:

I’ve liked this dress for a while, it looks comfy and sweet and I think you could have a lot of fun with fabric selection and contrast optons. I have plenty in my stash that this pattern could work with, here is just a small selection:

Last is Lekala 5928 and it’s not a dress, ah ha! I admit I am on a bit of a dress binge right now but after seeing Kat’s cute Dita skirt, I want a skirt that makes me want to shake my tail feather too! 😉

This is also a pattern brand which is new to me. This particular pattern comes off of a CD I bought a while ago. You enter your measurement and it produces the pattern to fit you…theoretically…so I think, since this is the first pattern from them I have ever made and also my first time printing from this CD (that is not entirely in English!), I will need make a quick muslin first to check. I also have plenty of fabric in my stash that could be made into this pattern, another small selection:

Help me decide what to make for the March TMS Challenge by voting in my poll, feel free to leave me a comment as well 🙂 :
