October's MAGAM Project

Hello Dear Sewists,

It's nice to finish before time every now and again.

A winter dress to wash away the sewing drought

I haven't been sewing much lately... Life persists in getting in the way. But I did finish a cool-weather dress for myself over the weekend.

I used the new Version 6 of Wild Ginger's PatternMaster Boutique to draft it, and I'm very happy with how it came out. More pictures and details on my blog.

Vintage Peplum Dress

Simplicity 1460 was supposed to be my November garment but I managed to finish this dress when I had a day off recently. Although I have already completed my October garment I thought that I would post this as I mentioned that I would be making it as next months MAGAM challenge.

I did have some trouble with this pattern, so I am just relieved that I have something that I can wear at the end of it. More details on my BLOG.

Happy Sewing!

Lovenicky's Oct Project finished - Vogue 9574 jacket

I finished my 'ambitious' Fall/Winter jacket. I have made lots of changes to this pattern with the fit and the style. I was inspired by the current RTW trends of motocycle jacket styles, quilted jackets and contrast sleeves jackets. It was a bit of a challenge with all the changes. You can see my sewing journey for this jacket and more photos on my blog.

I have also reviewed this pattern on

A dazzling top...

Well, this top is so sew and shine it is dazzling :).  I think the sun was very bright outside today, so it is rather washing the photo out.  Oh well.  I take them inside and they are too dark, outside and they are too light.  Such is the life of a blogger :)

This is adapted from a dress - Vogue 1390.  More on my blog - click here.
