Project for January

Hello all!

I'd like to introduce you to my project choice for the month of January:


As soon as I saw this tunic in the My Image magazine, I knew it would be one I wanted to make! basically live in tunic, skinny jeans, and boots as soon as the weather gets cold, and this doesn't seem like an intimidating project to get me going again.

I will definitely have to make a slight adjustment for the waist, since this pattern is for plus-size ladies. That will ensure that I won't be swimming in the garment. But I do plan on sewing the smallest size, 42 cm.

I have chosen a fabric from my stash (pictured above), a cotton knit purchased from Joanns a LONG time ago. This will be the first pattern I have ever made from My Image, so I hope the experience is a good one. I have heard that their instructions, in older issues, can be difficult to follow.  However, I believe they have improved their issues a lot, and look forward to seeing how this garment turns out. Besides, I chose something easy, so I hope that helps, lol!!!

My goal is to get everything traced out and adjusted for this week.

By the way, thanks to an awesome recommendation from Annie from The Enantiomer Project, I joined the Facebook group MAGAM (Make A Garment A Month).  It falls in line with my "Easy as Pie" Sewing Plan, and seems like a wonderful, encouraging place for those who appreciate sewing. Check it out if you like!

Stay sew-filled!
