The first month of this challenge has already finished and I'll be posting the finished garments later in this post.
People are still joining the challenge - it's great the word is still spreading via the button!
Lucille: www.sewitnow.wordpress.com - Lucille has asked if her sewing group (SIN - sew it now - what a gorgeous acronym -and a subgroup of.Atlantic Sewing Group, Nova Scotia) could join the challenge. Of course, Lucille. Please post the Make a Garment a Month Challenge rules on your groups blog and your participants should post there (as well as there own blogs, if they have them).
*****Okay, I am not going to spend too long boring you, but just a quick reminder that the rules are posted in the Make a Garment a Month Challenge page - go to the top bar of this blog to read them.
I am not that strict (not like Pattern Review, which I love, but they are very firm with their rules!). I know life happens too, so just do your best :)
Most of you have written great posts about your Garment of the Month - I would encourage everyone to visit everyone else's blogs and have a really good look - so much effort has gone into these garments and the blogs. You will find all sorts of great information, some great photos, and the support and encouragement everyone gets from comments really helps the sewjo.
I am only posting one picture per person to encourage you all to go and visit each other and find out the inside details...
It's also likely I will miss someone, or someone is doing the challenge that I don't yet know about - just let me know by comment, or by emailing me - firstname.lastname@example.org
It's time to post your November plans too - some of you already have, and I'll add these at the end of this post - and if I miss your plans today, I'll post them next week...
Good luck for November, and here are the October completers:
OCTOBER 2013, MAKE A GARMENT A MONTH COMPLETERS:
(Lisa made two garments for herself)
(Andrea has completed two skirts for herself, and a petticoat refashion).
(I'm posting this as it is complete except for the button- the button is not done as it is not the correct button - rather than compromise, it's best to do it later, rather than spoil the garment for the sake of the challenge).

3RD NOVEMBER UPDATE:
Sherry is taking part in this sew-a-long but doesn't have a blog. She emailed me her picture which I omitted to put in... thanks for letting me know Sherry - this will happen occasionally as I am more than human :). Sherry has made Jalie (2908) jeans in plain denim, and not in stretch as the pattern calls for.
|Sherry - Jalie 2908 jeans sent via email|
Marianne says she failed to complete this challenge - she was doing a crafty course and found that there was a lot to learn, and still bits to tweak. She doesn't want to ruin her jeans for the sake of this challenge - and I quite agree. Go and visit Marianne's blog for the full story....
PLANS FOR NOVEMBER, MAKE A GARMENT A MONTH CHALLENGE:
Judy has already posted her plans - she is going to make this gorgeous dress:
M. Inez www.inezcraftroom.blogspot.com

I think that is all the plans - do comment or email me if you have your November plans posted. My email again email@example.com.
That's quite some post - what a great effort from all of you. I can't wait to see what we all do for November, can you?
Take care where ever you are,
Sarah Liz :)
