Introducing our first Pattern of the Month Challenge!

Seamwork Bo
Each month at our meetings we'll announce a Pattern of the Month Challenge -- or, a POM! The hashtag for this will be #SGGPOM, and you'll be able to find all our challenges under the #SGGPOM tag on social media or here on the website!

To start us off gently, this month's challenge is to make a Woven Top.

This can be any easy pullover top of your choice, as long as it is made in a woven and not a knit. (we'll get to those later!)

You are welcome to pick any pattern you like, but here are some suggestions:

Maya Top by Marilla Walker

Bo Top by Seamwork

Sutton Blouse by True Bias

Harmony Blouse by Love Notions

Shirt No. 1 by 100 Acts of Sewing

New Look 6217

McCalls 6685


In the Folds / Peppermint Magazine Ruffle Sleeve Top

Colette Sorbetto

Purl Soho Draft Your Own Boxy Top

Purl Soho Boxy Top version 1
