Make a Garment a Month Challenge - Your Wonderful December Plans
Hello everyone - lots of plans have been posted for December. We also have a new blogger joining us - another Tisha from www.tishassewaddicted.com.
I have lots of news for you about this challenge next year. This challenge has become so successful that I need to set up a separate blog. I am getting it ready over the next week or so. All of you who have so far participated in this challenge by making and posting a garment are invited to join this blog. I will need your email address so I can send you an invitation. The best way to do this is to ask you to email me. This works with Blogger's automations well.
This is a great opportunity to have a really fun community blog with other sewers who also want to challenge themselves in all sorts of sewing ways. It's also a great source of motivation to be working with other lovely people to achieve a sewing goal.
I also want to let you know that Sarah Beth from www.goodbyevalentino.com is holding a RTW fast during 2014. This challenge and Sarah Beth's challenge seem to be made for each other - it's also a great opportunity for meeting other bloggers who sew. Sarah's challenge kicks off in January and so does our new blog.
The New Year is great time for setting new sewing goals - and joining a group is a great way to help make them happen.
Okay, that's the news done, now on to the real business - plans for the month of December. Before these though, I just want to show you the last two garments completed for November. And don't forget there are earlier posts, so all your garments should be up by now. The gallery can be found here. Let me know if I have missed you.
Meigan had one or two complications with this dress - she can tell you all about them here.
NEXT, THE WONDERFUL DECEMBER PLANS:
Judith is making Vogue 8766 in this colourful print.
Heather thinks she is being quite ambitious is making Vogue 1348 - visit her blog to find out why.
Harper jacket, by Style Arc
Chris is recovering from her wadder, so she is going to attempt something simple this month, the Harper jacket (a Style Arc pattern). Good luck Chris :)
Melwyk has made lovely dresses during this challenge, and is planning another: Kwik Sew 4013
Debby is joining Chris in making a simple knit coverall this month - McCalls 6084
Kathy lives in Perth, Australia - and summers can get very hot in Perth, so Kathy has chosen this simple little dress, Vogue 1236.
Sarah Liz - http://sarahlizsewstyle.blogspot.com
I'm going to make the very popular Butterick 5917.
Gaye is going to set herself quite a challenge - she is going to make a pair of trousers from M6361.
Gmarie : http://gmariesews.blogspot.com
GMarie is also on a dress roll at the moment, and is going to make the (By Hand London) Elisalex dress this month.
Tasha sews: http://tashsews.blogspot.com
Tasha is going to make herself a birthday dress - McCalls 6695. She is going to use quite a striking navy chiffon - pop over to her blog to find out more.
Linda is the second person in our group to make up McCalls 6814. It should look stunning.
(Well, I think this is what Linda is making - she was also talking about a making a skirt - but plans do sometimes wobble, we all know that :) ).
Mrs Smith: www.sewcraftychemist.blogspot.com
Mrs Smith sews a lot, but has decided she needs a corduroy skirt - and she is going to use Simplicity 1783 for this project.
And some of you are undecided. With Christmas quite close, that is understandable :).
