March MAGAM Determined

The theme for the Make a Garment a Month Challenge is "Mad March on March".  I"m going to use the "Mad" portion of the theme and make a new spring garment.  

I've selected the "Mad" portion of the theme for three reasons.

Reason #1 - my fabric selection looks a bit "Mad".  I'll be using the floral print and the blue/green polka dot with the crazy floral trim leftover from my last project to make Anna Maria's Study Hall Skirt.  The purple knit will be a t-shirt blouse out of Simplicity 1808.

Reason #2: I don't have enough of the floral print to easily cut out all of the pieces for the skirt so I'll have to piece a few of the pieces together.  That will be truly "Maddening"!

Reason #3:  Look at the Simplicity pattern print out below.  I mean really look at it.  What's missing?

It has the sizing lines but the "Front" and "Back" are not labeled on any of the pieces on this sheet along with all of the corresponding pattern numbers.  I'm sure it's just a printing error - but I wonder if all of these patterns were printed this way.  The second sheet to this pattern had all of the necessary information printed on the pieces but not this sheet.  If you have this pattern - be sure to pull it out and see if all of your information has been printed!

Wish me luck!

Happy Sewing!


  1. Good luck on your project! I love cheery fabric for your skirt and I am sure the final outfit will be fabulous :)

  2. You made me run and check my pattern. I have the larger sizes and all my pieces are labelled. I'm sure it's just a misprint. Or missing print. Ha!
