Three picks from the Third Month

I haven't had much to show on the sewing front lately, so I thought I would do a quick review of the upcoming BWOF for March. So as not to bore you with a commentary of what I really like and the styles that fall into the shankapotamus category, I will select my 3 favorites that I see myself actually sewing. Not feeling the love as much as I did for February's issue...lots to love there. Anyway, here goes: Dress #107 It's the year of the sheath. Thank you Michelle Obama for your classic style! I love the simple lines of this dress and I can see sewing at least one of these in the near future and Sara might also like this dress. Now to find the perfect fabric! Next up: Pencil skirt 104 BI am really digging the higher waist and shape of this skirt and the yoke detail and pockets. It looks like the pockets should not add a lot of bulk, which is a good thing! And last:A classic styled trench coat for Spring. BWOF consistently does great trenches. I really want to make one and this may be the one! The March issue also has the nautical track. I'm not so much a sailor, so that does not appeal to me, but it may to someone else. I did cut out another knit top out of a remnant I picked up at JoAnn's yesterday to stitch up and hope to get to the machines this afternoon. It sure looks like JoAnn's is feeling the economy. I saw a lot less merchandise than the last time I was at the OC JoAnn's. Not always my first choice for fabric, but I would hate to see them disappear.

Where are you seeing this March preview? I looked on the Burda English site yesterday and it was not up there. Cute picks, by the way.
