Just the idea of this sewing challenge makes me relax…a garment a month, just for me – well, OK, I mostly sew for myself anyway. But there’s something so inviting about making it official and special.
– 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!
