It's nearing the end of the month and so many of you have already finished some very lovely garments. I'll be posting these later in the blog. Next Saturday I will post all the October garments - that will give you a few extra days to post your garment on your blog :)
I also post all the garments in a Gallery so that you can look at all the garments in one spot. If you look at the top bar of this blog, you will find the Make a Garment a Month Gallery.
I do go around all your blogs to find your garments, but if I miss you, please, please, please do tell me, by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by commenting on my blog.
And I know there are some of you out there who have joined the challenge, but I don't know who you are - in which case, again, just let me know...
This week three new sewers took up this challenge:
Judy, Lisa and Patty have already completed garments - I'll tell you more about them later in this post.
PLANS are still coming in:
Lisa: www.pieceworktreasures.blogspot.com is planning to make a co-ordinated wardrobes, -using this challenge to motivate herself to make garments that work back with each other. I'll be joining you on that challenge Lisa - it's all to easy to have orphans in the wardrobe, as many of us know :)
An update also from Jolanda: www.jolandassewingcorner.blogspot.com
Jolanda has found this stunning fabric (she has details of where she found it on her blog) and is planning to make a skirt:
JBB has found this wonderful fabric that reminds her of Venice. JBB I visited your blog today. Unfortunately my webshield did not like Bloggers translation today and blocked it. While I can read enough French to make sense of your post, I am afraid it is a very long time since I have had to write or speak it. So I commented, a bit in French, and a bit in English.
