Is the saying “Last stitch effort or Last ditch effort”?

8 Answers

  • It's "last ditch effort"

    Done or made as a final recourse, especially to prevent a crisis or disaster: a last-ditch effort to avert the threatened strike.


  • Last Stitch Effort

  • Likely, the most used would be last ditch, as in historical defensive warfare efforts of trenches, or ditches in front of a fort's palisades, or city walls where the last confrontation would occur before retreating behind the walls and being subject to a seige.

    However, for me, last stitch also works, as in darning a sock or repairing a tear; the final stitch in the repair.

  • Ditch

  • Last Ditch effort - as in ...... if it doesn't work this time, I'm throwing the whole mess in the ditch and walking away!

  • Last ditch, but I haven't used this expression in a very long time.
