It’s halfway through the month, and I just realized that I had not “declared” a garment for my April MAGAM challenge. It wasn’t a difficult task to choose one. I simply went to my list and picked something my closet is lacking.
Here’s what I have, in case you forgot
- Tops: 6
- Skirts: 1
- Pants: 8
- Dresses: 4
- Top layers: 3
I’m up to 22 garments with the addition of my two gray test pants. My Project 333 experiment is going quite well, and I have enjoyed having only coordinating items to choose from when I dress each day. So far, two weeks in, I haven’t felt the least bit limited. I haven’t even worn any of the dresses or the skirt at this point–it’s still too cool in the morning when I dress to consider them.
Once the weather warms a bit more, I’ll be retiring my three top layers and I’ll want something lightweight to fill that role. So for April’s MAGAM, I’ll make a top to wear alone or over another top should the need arise. I’ve chosen The Sewing Workshop’s Siena Shirt from a floral print.
The Siena is the cap sleeve shirt shown in pink on the pattern. I have traced the size S, and am wondering if it will be small enough. I chose that size because the collar stand for the XS seemed awfully short. My measurements, of course, would have me in the medium.
I know better than to try that.
We’ll see if the finished top looks as slim as the pattern artwork suggests or if it hangs like a sack. I’m betting on sack, but I saw a finished top at our ASG event on Saturday that was lovely.
We’ll know soon enough!
