Make a Garment a Month January

I seem to have an awful lot of catching up to do. With everything, sewing, blogging, the etsy shop, really everything. So something simple for January....

I am going to make view C (the floral image) in this lovely Thai cotton with a textured self stripe which I bought at the fabulous Narin Fabric Supermarket in Chiang Mai for about $1.50/metre. This will be a test run of sizing etc on the simpler version before I eventually make the blue one (view B) in some lovely blue linen. But that will probably be for the sewcialists blue february.

And just for the record, I did finish my green pants for December. See, here they are

Not much of a picture I know. They do fit ok, they have been worn but no pics were taken. And since I need to iron them before this can happen, it may be a while....

Happy sewing


  1. Love that textured Thai cotton fabric, it's gorgeous! Can't wait to see the finished top.

    1. Thanks, I'm hoping it'll make a fairly ordinary top that bit more fun

  2. I'm impressed with the trousers. That's one of my big Can'ts (that I will hopefully overcome some day, but not anytime soon!).

    1. Thanks but you haven't seen them on me;) Actually they are ok but as always the next pair will be better.


I love to hear from readers, so please leave a comment.
