It’s that time of month! Time to show off what I’ve been working on for the Sew Our Stash challenge!
We moved things up a day since Thanksgiving is Thursday!
Marissa from Rae Gun Ramblings and I are committed to sewing more clothes for ourselves – and we are both having so much fun with this challenge!
This month I made up two Colette patterns I’ve been dying to try. I made the Violet top and the Zinnia skirt!
I made up the top in a really cute print I found at Jo-Ann Fabrics – I love the retro feel of the top but I think it was just a little bit heavy for the pattern. Or something. I’d like to try it again with a thinner fabric like a voile.
Here’s a better look at the Violet top:
That Peter Pan collar makes me so happy.
And while I like my new top, I adore my new skirt. This Zinnia pattern is so fast to make and the results are so cute!
The pleats make such a flattering waist and I love that it has pockets too!
I will definitely be making more of these up!
So I have a fun new outfit for the month!
We have loved seeing what you are sharing on the #sewourstash hashtag on Instagram too! We’ve chosen a few features for this month – you can check out the links below to their IG accounts. It is so fun checking out what you are all making!

You’ll want to head over to visit Marissa and see what she made this month too!
