    I would be split between buying the Beignet and the Lady Grey. I love the detail and pockets of the Beignet skirt and I love the style of the Lady Grey coat.

    I want to make the negroni shirt for my husband, he is tall with long arms and has issues finding shirts that fit.

    I would get the Clover, I’ve been wary of making pants because the fit is always terrible, but after seeing the results from the Clover sewalong, I want to give it a try!

    I want to make the negroni shirt for my brother. I have made so much for my mom but nothing for him or my dad, it’s a shame!

    I would definetly buy Ceylon dress as it looks quite versatile. I imagine it in denim, also in a translucid fabric to wear over a bikini in the summer and also you can make it a bit bigger and with long sleeves so as to make a coat. With the rest of the money and adding a bit, I would also buy Sencha blouse pattern as I felt in love with all the beautiful creations and variations of the people who has already bought the pattern.

    Definitely the Sencha, so classic. I could feel very 40’s movie star with the Sencha shirt in silk and some tweedy wide leg pants, simply elegant. The Peony dress too.
