First Version Of Burda T-Shirt 06/2008

Hello, I am so happy that I finally made a t-shirt. It was a very fun project to make and I am so surprised that making it was not scary at all :) My June Magam plan is making an outfit (white knit t-shirt and floral skirt) - I am working on the skirt now and as I am not sure about the t-shirt pattern, I tried to make it first with another fabric. So, I will not ruin the white knit fabric if the t-shirt didn't came out well. I use the left over fabric from my husband pajama shorts, it's knit cotton in dark blue color and I decided to top stitch the t-shirt with orange thread around the neckline, armholes, sleeves hem and hem line. This idea came out suddenly during sewing and I think this t-shirt will match with my orange skirt . And the result, as shown in the picture above is just lovely and perfect for everyday wear :) More details of the t-shirt, Pattern and modification : Burda t-shirt pattern 06/2008 - 113 size 34. Sorry I couldn't find the link about it. I

Sewing Plans

Hello everyone, Today post is about my sewing plans for  Magam Challenge and about other things that I want to do in the next couple weeks. For Magam June plan, I want to make an outfit - a very comfy t-shirt and a skirt. For the fabrics: T-shirt, I will use 1.5 yards of knit cotton in white color and for the skirt, I will use 1.5 yards of floral stretch cotton. For the patterns, T-shirt, Burda pattern 113/114 from Burda Magazine from June 2008 in Spanish edition. I saw the minimum size is 38, so I have to draw size 36 by myself and I saw that the t-shirt had nice detail in the armholes and sleeves, but I am not sure which one will suit me. So, I will try both styles - with or without gather. I will see later...   Skirt, I will use  Burdastyle pattern 10/2013 - 123 size 36 - for sure I have to make adjustment on the waist. The skirt has a slight flare and decorative large hip-yoke pockets. Image source And for other plans, I want to make four summer dresses. I wil

Finished Magam May Trousers

 Hello everyone, I am very happy that I managed to finish my May project for   Make A Garment A Month Challenge  and already wore it last Thursday for MMM day 29 - as shown on the picture above :) It took so long to finish this trousers because I got some kind of laziness, I just want to sew something easy this moment. So, making trousers was really a wrong decision. But anyway, I am so glad that I've done it before the end of the month :) For the pattern: I used Burdastyle Bootcut Trousers 10/2013#126 A size 38 with some adjustments. And for the materials: I used 2 yards of stretch twill woven cotton in grey color, polka dots cotton for integrated pocket, fusible interfacing for the waistband, hook n eye, snap fastener, zipper and same color of thread. Sewing process : I mentioned on my last post  that I will use size 36 but in the end I used size 38. I made muslin first for better result and better fitting trousers ( as in the past I am not really sure how many p
