The Made Up Initiative – I’m in!


Most of you quite possibly already know about the awesome Made Up Initiative hosted by Karen of Did you Make that. If you dont, hop skip and click to the Karen’s post here for full details.

I am in because I enjoy sewing to a challenge and this helps a cause close to my heart – Literacy.

Without further adue here is  my self-set challenge. I pledge to make McCalls M6996 Shirtdress using stash fabric by 10 September 2015 to support Made Up.

Off to sewing cave 🙂

Happy sewing everyone!

    1. I have had this pattern for about 9 months and kept putting it off because of all the steps in it. Now is the time! How awesome you are making one as well! Looking forward to seeing yours😃

      1. There are lots of steps but they’re easy, so it’s not too bad. I just had a problem easing in the sleeves (as usual), so they have weird peaks at the top. I gave up after 3 1/2 hours, LOL. I just need to finish the button bands and attach the collar and I’m DONE! 🙂 Can’t wait to see yours!

    1. Hang in there! I watch for sales too and never buy any pattern now unless on sale😃. I have my eye on a few Vogue and McCalls ones that I am also waiting for the sale.

  1. This is also my make for the initiative! I’ve put the sleeves in and as a comment above said there is a lot of ease – I got there in the end. Looking forward to seeing your finished dress.


  2. Yay! Another Made Up participant! I’m really looking forward to seeing what everyone is going to make. Also, I have this pattern so definitely eager to see what you make.
