Ever the diplomat, Sarah Liz has taken everyone's ideas and combined them into 'Make a Garment a Month Challenge' May 2015's theme. We are an international group with some of us entering Spring, and some entering Fall. Here in South Carolina, USA we are entering Spring. Or shall I say Summer, as it's already hot, hot, hot! Okay, let's see what we've got here. Hmmmm.... Spring Flowers, Monotone, Sew, Embroider.... what does that say to you?
I purchased the 'Alabama Studio Sewing + Design' book from Alabama Chanin last year when she was not only running one of her few sales...... but.....
So, as one who is not always able to abide by the monthly 'theme', I'm kinda' proud of myself that I'm hitting it from all angles this month.
Monotone palette - check!
Work with flowers - check!
Embellish a garment with embroidery or use an embroidered fabric - check!
Happy Sewing Everyone!

Lovely design. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished skirt.ReplyDelete
How exciting to have found this brilliant idea for your May theme. Looking foward to seeing your work in progress.ReplyDelete
Thank you Kathy and Erin! I'm looking forward to the process. Skirt is cut out and basted to check for fit. Now to finalize the embellishments.ReplyDelete
This is going to be lovely - this will be such a pretty basic that I am sure is going to turn out beautifully. Can't wait to see it. I will be keen to see how you do the embroidery. I will be going away later this year and am thinking about taking some A.C. ideas to work by hand. And well done for ticking all the boxes!ReplyDelete
I hope so.... a 'pretty' basic... not 'boring'! I'm also looking forward to doing the embroidery. I've been experimenting on samples, and it's been taking me back to my childhood days, learning basic embroidery from my grandmother and great-grandmother. Nice. Thanks so much for all your encouragement.... even during your busy time!Delete
