The bright ladies over at The Monthly Stitch have deemed April Miss Bossy month. The theme is to choose 3 unused stash patterns and let your readers choose. Sounds easy!
That means YOU get to decide what I’m making next month!
Lately I’ve been rethinking my SWAP plans. Thanks to a number of failed projects, I’m pretty far behind on that project and reconsidering my pattern choices. The deadline is at the end of next month and I’m not sure if I can actually make a good fitting pair of pants in that time. Whether or not I can the reality is I’m really tired of trying. I’ve made a number of ill-fitting slopers these last 3 months and I’m over pants at the moment.
However, I still need to use up the cotton sateen I bought specifically for this challenge, so why not make a skirt instead?
I hunted through my stash for the right A-line skirt with front pockets that I could wear casually or to work and found thees. Please vote in the little widget below or in the sidebar. Voting is open until 4/4! I’ll post about the winning pattern the following day.
McCalls 7414: an out-of-print pattern which I would add pockets to
McCall’s 6361: basically the perfect starting template
Simplicity 8175: a more fashion-forward option
Thank you for voting!
