What are you sewing this month?

March is an interesting time in sewing. New Patterns are being released that bridge the gap between winter and spring or the reverse in the lower hemisphere. We see dresses coming from the US sewists and the Australian! There are sleeveless numbers in all the climates and we anxiously await blossoms and long days. Let’s jump right in!

The Zadie dress from Tilly and the Buttons has been popping up a lot, but also other knee length dresses and color blocking too. Here are a few great examples!

It’s still a little chilly out though for just a sleeveless top or dress and with project #sewmystyle there have been a surge of Saunio Cardis (I made one too)!
