Make a Garment a Month - More December Plans...

Hi Everyone,

The news this week is that the Make a Garment a Month Challenge has a new home.  The challenge has been so successful that a separate blog is needed.   The rules for participation are simple - basically, make a garment for yourself, post your plans on your blog and the Make a Garment a Month blog at the beginning of the month (which may be half way through the month for some of you !!) and then make the garment.  When you have finished at the end of the month, write your post and post your garment to the  Make a Garment a Month Challenge blog.

Lots of you have already emailed me - if you haven't, please do so, and I will send you an invitation to join the Make a Garment a Month Challenge blog.  It is easier if you email me, because I need your email address to send the invite to.  My email is

Before I start the rest of the December plans (and some went up last week )  another completed November garment has been posted from



Accordion 3:

December plans are for a pretty little top that no-one else will be wearing :)

Chris: :  it's summer down under and Chris plans to make a maxi dress for going on holidays...


Winter is coming and JBB plans to make a lovely warm dressing gown:

What a pretty dressing gown this will be.  Just right for Christmas by the fire.


That beautiful fabric can only mean one thing...

Sharon's planning to finish her Little French Jacket and matching skirt.  This will be a stunning outfit.


A vibrant rayon print - Meigan is using Simplicity 1810, but I have no idea whether she is making a dress, top or pants with this.  We will all have to wait and see :)

Tisha: http:/

Tisha is going to make a lovely little New Look dress (6145):

In a beautiful red Ponte - just the right colour for Winter.


Farhana wants to practice drafting patterns:

And is planning to make this little jacket.  More details on her blog...

I think that is all for the December plans.

Next week I will post the first finished garments ...and yes, one person has finished her garment for the month.

I better go now and do some work on my garment of the month.

And finished :  Karen - sew well maide - get picture.


  1. Happy to report I not only finished my December plan... I've actually made two dresses and 1/2 way through the 3rd. Drafted the pattern from a RTW and made a few changes to it. Love it and it's perfect for our hot summers and for our Bali Xmas holiday. Now just have to find some time to do a blog post for show and tell lol

    Looks like there's been quite a lot of December plans and everyone is having a lot of sewing fun :)
