June's Rather Ambitious MAGAM
Due to an influx of various house guests during the month of May, plus a very busy half term working week, I missed for the first time ever, participating in the MAGAM challenge.
So I aim to be rather ambitious this month and make up for that by attempting to make two (yes, two!) garments using these 2 fabrics
and these 2 patterns
The theme this month is stash busting, but whereas most sewers have hoards of fabric (hence the theme) mine is very limited. I am actually trying to increase my stash not diminish it!
So, as a lover of themes, to keep in with this monthly theme as best I can, I am going to use the piece of fabric that I have had the longest (which is the plain peach featured on the right hand side) and make a cardigan using McCalls 6708. I will be making View A but with long sleeves.
The patterned fabric is a beautifully fine needlecord which I will use to make the Meigan Neilson BRUMBY Skirt Version 1
I realise I am being rather hopeful in completing both these projects but at the very least, I aim to finish the cardigan. So wish me luck and watch this space....!
Thanks for stopping by and taking time to read.
Happy June Sewing!
