MAGAM plans for June 2014

I've thoroughly enjoyed being a part of a group of such nice, encouraging ladies of the Make a Garment a Month Challenge, hosted by Sarah Liz.  Sarah Liz also give us monthly themes to consider.  This month's theme is:
So, I've chosen the Rachel Comey Vogue 1247 top to make out of the accompanying fabric shown below.  I know, I know, I'm the last female on the face of the planet to finally buy, much less sew!, this pattern but only just now feel my sewing abilities are up to the challenge!  My first Vogue too.  Can I tell you I'm even nervous to cut my pattern?!  I'm thinking I will trace this one.  Plus I've been reading all the reviews to try to figure out which size to cut.  Oh, so much to consider!  The fabric I've chosen is 100% polyester-silk-like with a 'silky' feel and drape.  I'm looking forward to wearing something as lovely as this seems it will be.  And am thinking I am matching the correct type fabric to the proper pattern.    :)
I totally missed making May's MAGAM plans, but feel pretty good that I made 2 Kirsten Kimono Tees, 1 pair of NEWLOOK 6246 pants and 1 (unblogged) NEWLOOK 6192 skirt in the month of May, along with participating in Me-Made-May 2014, our gardening season beginning and a couple of out-of-town trips thrown in to boot.  So I'm just moving on!

Looking forward to June!

  1. Good luck with the slippery fabric. I've made that skirt twice but never the top. All I know about it is that I hear it runs big, which you undoubtedly already know.

    1. I have read that the top runs big and cannot decide whether to size it down one sizes or two. Looking forward to making the skirt soon! Thanks Barbara!

  2. Love the fabric and love the look of the top, but I feel it's not for me. Too big and loose. I've made the skirt twice though and have plans for a third. I love it!

  3. Wow, you have been busy this month :). Must be the spring weather. The top is easy to make in a cotton lawn (which is what I used) but the slippery fabric will be more challenging - there are a lot of french seams. I find it best worn over a camisole, as it does have a tendency to slip about, even though I added extra to the neck edge. I like mine though, and am glad I made it, so I want to wish you the same :)

    1. I have wondered about the slippery-ness of my fabric, but hope there's enough body to it that it's not a total nightmare to work with. I thought about adding to the neck too..... boy that thing is low! Thank you Sarah Liz!

    2. There are lots of reviews on pattern review, so that will give you a good idea how this blouse works.
