Sewing My Stash Off: Week 1, Pattern Letter A: Andrea

Since this is the beginning of my pattern sewing challenge, I thought I would start with a little explanation.

Over the years, I have accumulated many patterns that I’ve never even opened….. Coupled with a stash of fabric that I feel is being neglected…..

So here I am with my 2019 sewing ๐Ÿงต goal….to Sew my Stash Off!

I do purchase patterns from many companies online, but the majority of them come from So much so, I’ve got an alphabet of patterns I have yet to print and sew ๐Ÿ˜ณ.

No more. I will sew them. (Well at least 26 of them)

This week we begin with A

A for Andrea

As with many of the patterns for women…there a SO MANY OPTIONS. The part of this style that doesn’t change, however is the Wide neck…. however, sleeve length, ruffles on sleeves (0-3) , and top to dress length is all available in size XXS-3X

Isn’t that so cool!

I chose 3/4 length sleeves, 2 ruffles (one lace), and the tall top length.

I’m not trying to be dramatic here, honest…I’m talking to the dog

See, he’s so needy! ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿถ

I love this in a solid with the lace under ruffle, but it would be super cute in a floral or print too!

What do you think? What style would you want to wear?
