Make a Garment a Month Challenge Update 9 November, Your Plans...
What a success this challenge has become - I love your enthusiastic response :). Let's see if we can keep the momentum going and get a good community happening via our blogs.
Before I start the post, I thought I would just run through a couple of housekeeping issues, especially for new people joining us. Those of you already in the challenge can just skip this part and go to the exciting plans later in the post :)
New people are finding us all the time - that's thanks to the button you put on your sidebar. This means we all get to meet new sewers and new bloggers.
Mina , Sherry and Heather have just joined.
It's lovely that some people that have found out about this challenge are starting their own blogs too. It's great to have you with us in the blogosphere.
For those of you who are new to the challenge, do read the rules in the top bar of my blog. These are guidelines to help you structure your sewing goals and to keep the challenge on track.
To new bloggers, if you are not sure how to put the button on your side bar, please read this post:
Don't worry too much if it is all too much to work out how to do right now - over time you will find this quite easy to do.
That's the blah, blah, now the bit that's interesting ...all your
VERY WONDERFUL PLANS FOR NOVEMBER GARMENTS:
Judy has already posted her plans - she is going to make this gorgeous dress:
M. Inez www.inezcraftroom.blogspot.com
Is going to make this stunning gown:
Mrs Smith: www.sewcraftychemist.blogspot.com
From this stunning plaid:
A truly elegant jacket - can't wait to see it made up, Mrs Smith :)
Jolanda is going to make a really stunning dress - the pattern comes from the October pattern supplement in Klipmode:
And the fabric she has chosen is so gorgeous:
I think this is going to look really special, Jolanda :)
Debby : www.myphasethree.blogspot.com
Is going to make this lovely Marcy Tilton Top, bottom right out of these lovely fabrics. Looks like a gorgeous warm colour theme is emerging here :)
Good luck with this top Debby.
Chris (Blue Sea): www.sewtypical.blogspot.com
Chris plans to make up this lovely Tea Garden T Top. I am not familiar with these patterns, so we all learn new things everyday in blogland.
Chris thinks this top will be a challenge for her - I think it will look super when it is done.
Farhana is learning to make her own patterns and wants to make a simple top:
Good luck Farhana ...
Melanie is planning to make two garments:
And the second, also in a great print, is a Kwik Sew Dress
Both very pretty - these will look lovely made up:)
Has set herself a challenge with stripes:
Is using this coat from BurdaStyle 10/2011 as the inspiration for her fur coat.
And she has found this stunning fur:
She is going to use a TNT that she has already made up - do pop over to her blog and have a look...
SewBlessedMaw (Judy) : www.sewblessedmaw.blogspot.com
Judy is working on her second Indygo Junction garment in the Make a Garment a Month Challenge:
She hasn't decided which fabric yet - she hopes she can use the blue fabric but there might not be quite enough...
gmarie: www.gmariesews.blogspot.com - Is going to make the Anna dress from By Hand London.
A truly beautiful dress :)
Has found some stunning local fabric (she lives in Thailand at the moment):
Gaye has also set up an Etsy shop, so pop over to her blog where you will find the link.
Is planning to make this superb coat :
Linda plans to make a skirt out of this fabulous faux leather:
She hasn't chosen her pattern yet - but I think whatever she chooses, this skirt is going to look great :)
Also no visuals, but Hana is planning to make an easy long sleeve top from Burda Style.
Sharon: www.petiteandsewing.blogspot.com is thinking about making a top for the coming Australian summer.
Oh, and my plans:
As I am away for a few days and unable to sew, I have chosen a very simple pattern to make up so that at least I know I will get a garment made :
In dark navy cotton, just a summer basic elastic waist skirt.
AND, GUESS WHAT.....
TWO OF YOU HAVE ALREADY COMPLETED THEIR NOVEMBER GARMENTS - ANY IDEA WHO THEY ARE? (I'M HOPING YOU ALL VISIT EACH OTHER'S BLOGS AND ALREADY KNOW!!)
I'LL BE POSTING THEM NEXT WEEK ...THEY ARE BOTH STUNNING :)
That's all for now, see you soon,
Sarah Liz :)
