BurdaStyle Jacket In Progress

I am making a black jacket for my November MAGAM. For the pattern, I am using  BurdaStyle Jacket 09/2014 size 36 and for the fabrics, I am using 2 yards of linen in black color and 2 yards of gingham check fabric (poly-cotton blend) for the lining. Both of the fabrics are from stash.

And here is a picture of my sewing in progress that I posted in My Facebook Page
Happy sewing to you all!

Lovenickky's Nov project is done! Butterick 5247 sweater dress

My MAGAM November project is done! Yay! I used the tried and true Butterick 5147 knit dress pattern and made this Festive Sweater Dress really quickly.

I was too lazy to put on leggings for this photo but will definitely be wearing leggings/jeggings with this dress/tunic.
My review on is here. You can also see more about this project on My Blog.

November PR makes

On Pattern Review is a surprise sewing bee challenge and I can show you my entries for Round 1 and Round 2.

Round 1: A-line skirt challenge
Over 300 people signed up and over 140 people entered
51 people went through to Round 2.

Round 2: Reuse men's business shirts

The creativity aspect of this challenge ended up my making two pieces (three if you count the wristlets)  that were Steampunk inspired.

Here's a link to Round 2 gallery.

Round 3:?
21 people are now through to Round 3. I made the cut so I'm waiting to find out what sewing mischief I'll be in for the next 5 days.

Lovenicky's November Project Plan - A Festive Sweater Dress

Another Sweater Dress for me for the cooler months! This time I'm using a Stash Pattern and stash fabrics:

I'm choosing Butterick 5247 because it's a tried and true pattern for me. I have this gorgeous burgundy wool blend sweater knit in my stash for a while. I think it will be perfect for a sweater dress. It's a nice, festive colour that I can easily wear for the holidays too!
