April MAGAM Determined - Vogue 1382

The theme for April's Make a Garment A Month Challenge is one I suggested - make something from the oldest piece of fabric in your stash.  Since this theme was my idea, I guess I better get started! Sorry fellow MAGAMer's who are cursing the theme right now - I take full responsibility for it!

This selection of fabrics is the oldest in my stash.  I know they are all over 15 years old because I had them before we moved into our current home in 2001.  The two on the left are raw silk, the ikat in the middle is a cotton and the three on the right are linens.

Using Vogue 1382, an Anne Klein design, I'll attempt to use of these pieces in some combination to make the dress.


I think I'll mock-up a drawing of the garment too before I start slicing and dicing the fabric to see which placement I like best.  That seemed to work well with my last garment.  And - this dress will require a muslin so more to come on this one!

Happy "Stash" sewing everyone!

  1. This is a fun pattern; I've made the dress up in ponte knit.

  2. Hoping you get to use the one in the middle. Unusual and dramatic!

    1. Me too. We'll have to see what the drawings look like first.
