I was a bit late finishing the second project for Sew Colette: the Pastille Dress. Overall, I really like it and I am pleased with the two-tone look and fit. If I were to make Pastille again, I would definitely try a full skirt version.

I am quite pleased with my first item for That's Sew Cinematic: Lady Edith's Blouse. The fabric is a lovely soft poly-blend, which was slightly slippery to work with at times. Despite tendencies to fray like mad, I love the blouse and think it's a nice nod to Lady Edith's style.
It was an absolute treat to review the pretty Bali Ha'i dress from Shabby Apple and the beautiful Pink Safari Separates from Tess Designs. All items are wonderful to wear; comfortable and flattering and have already had outings on their own! If you're looking for quality items with a vintage feel, I would highly recommend both Shabby Apple and Tess Designs!
I have also finished a second outfit for That's Sew Cinematic, based on Larita's trousers and Linda's tunic. I need to wait until the weather clears up before venturing outside for photographs. I made another version of Simplicity 3673, which is one of my favourites, that involved both stash-busting and a bit of Franken Pattern-ing.

For April, I would like to make the following:
- Taffy Blouse for Sew Colette
- Lady Mary's Armistice blouse and walking skirt for That's Sew Cinematic
What did you make in March? What are your plans for April? Has spring finally arrived or are you welcoming fall?
