Sarah Liz (SarahLizSewStyle) is hosting this year-long challenge, starting this month. Only a few simple guidelines (here's a link to the 'rules' page):
- The garment has to be for you and not for someone else...
- Choose a pattern at the beginning of the month and post about it with background on
how/why you choose that pattern, fabric, etc.
- Blog about the finished garment with pics, etc.
And the button is on my sidebar, has a link to the challenge as well.
I've already chosen my pattern for October, it's something I need badly! A long knit robe. My white one is 5 years old and just worn out.

I plan to make view C, and mine will be all the way to the floor and then some, as I'm using a cotton jersey that will shrink a bit over time. Love the back belt treatment, so forties!

Lots of inspiration for this robe. I've always loved the iconic Calvin Klein wrap robe.
But I have to admit that with all the work being done around the house - the roof, the slab leak, the mold remediation - my energy and resource reserves are really stretched.
So I'm also inspired by other great wrap robes...
I need a robe also, and it is a sewing project that I never seem to get to. Have fun with itReplyDelete
Will do. Will be so very svelte :-)Delete
I need PJ's and a robe. One robe has the pockets in tatters, the PJ's are just downright embarrassing. Nuff said. This is a bad month though, parents are coming in for a visit and I have promised my Dad a wool frock coat. Good grief, he's already bought the western ruffled shirt. I don't sew for men, but I guess I'm going to learn..REAL FAST!ReplyDelete
Way too funny!!!!ReplyDelete
This sounds like a manageable challenge I could do! I need a fab new Jedi robe, too....maybe I'll copy your first project but gaudily of course.ReplyDelete
