Apparently I missed the party the first time round (I wasn’t sewing then) but better late then never… I am making Vogue 8805
and I’m making it in this (these)…
The contrasting solids are just cheap ($2.50/m) cotton from my local fabric shop. The main fabric is locally made Thai cotton which is actually a maxi skirt. i.e. a tube of fabric with one seam up the back. I have had it for years so I can’t remember where I got it (probably Chaing Mai night bazaar) or what I paid for it (probably about $10).
You can find similar(ish) Thai cottons here in my etsy shop. Have a browse, maybe you’ll find something you like.
I also plan to use #makeagarmentamonth on social media so why don’t you too, then we can all follow along on Twitter or Instagram or both.
Lots of other plans brewing (that may involve a yellow skirt) but more on that later.
Here’s to a productive month everyone.
