May MAGAM Project

For May, I will be making a tunic from The Tunic Bible and a pair (or two!) of white pants.


The tunic will be made from the red/white circle print - it's a lightweight rayon.  The plackets on the front, sleeve and hem will be made from the matching red.  The red fabric, which I believe is cotton, was purchased at the latest sewing garage sale.  The red/white circle print was purchased last year from a neighborhood fabric store that was sadly closing.  I noticed when pressing the red/white print that one side of the print has quite a few misprints in the red circles, so I will need to cut out the tunic single layer to avoid the flaws.   Sadly, this will mean alot of fabric wasted in the process.  


Not sure if I will use the large rick rack yet as a trim on the tunic, but we'll see what happens.

As for the pants, I have been wanting to try the Megan Nielson Flint pants and The Sewing Workshop Urban T-shirt pants.  I have enough of the white linen that I could sew up both pairs.  Well see if time permits!

Happy sewing everyone!

  2. I love these fabrics! If you want to use the ric-rac, perhaps at the neckline? Can't wait to see this!
