You may have seen that I have in my side bar a badge for Make A Garment a Month challenge which SarahLizSewStyle is hosting to help keep us focused on sewing a little each day for ourselves. There are a lot of wonderful fellow sewers joining up.
My garment for October will be this raglan t-shirt from BurdaStyle Magazine as I have a RTW coral one that I wore constantly last year as I really liked the style.
However, I also want October to be the month to completely finish a number of garments that I have in various stages of completion:
- Chanel style jacket, that I started back in March during a weekend workshop in Brisbane. It is up to binding the jacket with a special gros-grain ribbon that has a groove in the centre. Once this is done the sleeves are set in and then the buttonholes (I think I will let Mick do these once I have purchased the buttons from All Buttons Great and Small).
- Pencil skirt in the same fabric that has the darts sewn and ready for the invisible zip.
- Denim style skirt in a forest green twill that only needs a buttonhole and jeans button which I have ordered from M.Recht to arrive.
I wonder how much I will achieve?
Now it is confession time, look what has followed me home from my last two ASG meetings at The Remnant Warehouse, the girls there are so obliging in pointing out fabric they think you will enjoy.

Looks like I have got November’s garment already lined up, but first I need to purchase the pattern whilst it is on special at Spotlight!
