JUNE CHALLENGE Something self designed or drafted

Oh this is not one that I have been looking forward to!  But that's the idea of a challenge isn't it?

So I am planning on whipping out the ENID mags and having a go at drafting a pattern.

I have in the past designed my own tracky pants for a friends son who was 3 and could not find trackies that fit him, I used this website.  The end result was rather satisfying.  The mum could make 5 pairs of trackies knowing they would fit!

Anyhoo sign up below!

Ooooh - can't wait for this one! I've got some gorgeous fabric with Frida Kahlo on it, which I have been longing to use - a skirt at the moment methinks - though it could change! Thanks for setting the challenges - wish I'd found you sooner! happy sewing :)

I have me a list of things I want to draft up using my fave tee pattern as a base. So once again the challenge is very timely.

I'm in for this one too. I'll be using a pattern that I've seen 'sketched' and will have to print off, draw up, then check that it will measure up properly. This is going to be a real challenge for me, but I can't wait for the fabric to arrive...

Oh hello! I just wandered across your blog and have been meaning to make a tshirt that fits! Or at least a tshirt. So this should give me the push I need (unless I end up making something a little less intimidating without knit fabric!)
