MAGAM Challenge : February Completed Garment

I'm a little late posting my completed garment for February. I actually finished it a couple of weeks ago - not in time to wear it when I intended but completed nonetheless. This skirt went together fairly easy. I added about 4 inches to both the bottom and the top section. Both fabrics were pieces I had in my stash. The fuchsia was a small remnant so I just made that section long enough to use up the piece that I had. I added the rest of the length to the top portion to acquire the length I wanted. Not sure if you can tell from the pics but I went all out with the color blocking and made the waistband white.

A couple of bloopers. I managed to put the waistband on backwards so I have to wear the skirt with the zipper on the right side instead of the left so that the overlap goes in the right direction. I also got some stains on it with my wax chalk. It's not highly visible as it was a yellow chalk. I'm going to treat the stains and launder it and hope it comes out. I've never had that happen before. The markings usually come right off with a warm iron.

The top is McCall's 6839.  I entered a sew-along on a Facebook group. So I decided to make it red to coordinate with my Valentine's Day skirt (which I did not get a chance to wear on Valentine's Day LOL)

Back view. Forgot to do that sway back adjustment. I'll remember next time.

Stay tuned for my March MAGAM plans. I have a couple of things in mind. Happy sewing!


  1. Pretty top! Yes, sewing does help keep the mind in tack as there are so many things to remember along the journey.

  2. Very nice top and fabric color! I like the whole outfit too :)
