Sew the Year March Recap

Tomorrow I will be sharing my Sew the Year sewing plans for April but today I wanted to share how March went.

To recap my plans, I planned to sew a knit View Ridge and the Colette Myrtle dress.  I am happy to say I managed to sew them both this month!  First month since starting this fun challenge that I actually got both projects done.

My Colette Myrtle dress was the perfect outfit for my daughters elementary school auction.  I was dressed up without being too over the top and it was fun to almost take on a different persona with this outfit.  Because faux leather is most definitely not my usual style.

I really look forward to finding other places to wear this dress, it is super comfy and a fun pattern mix.  Read all about how I remixed an old maxi dress into my Myrtle here.

My knit View Ridge has already been worn 3 or 4 times since I sew it, so I know this top is going to be in constant rotation year round.  It is the perfect amount of flowy without being too oversized and works wonderful layered with a cardi.  

I definitely have plans to make more of these.  If you want to read all about this pattern in more detail the full post is here.

I kept it simple for March since I was also releasing a pattern.  It was a nice balance for the month and I look forward to hitting the ground running with my April sews.  Check back tomorrow to read about my April plans.
