Vickie for making all these goodies for me! I hope you enjoy yours in return.
On another note, I think I am going to give the SWAP another go. This year's is a little different, so I think it will be something I will be able to complete without much issue. Below is a snippet from the Stitcher's Guild about the rules.
This year, our SWAP will focus on fitting, and making tried-and-true patterns: testing and fitting paper patterns, muslins, and fashion garments that will help lower the overall sewing failure rates, result in fabulous clothing to be proud of, and (hopefully) give every contestant a pattern or two that works every time it is used.
Choose any seven garments from this list:
Button Down Shirt w/Collar
Blouse or shirt (collar is optional)
Shorts or Capri Pants
Jacket (jean jacket, windbreaker, hoodie, etc.)
Coat (suit or sport coat)
Overcoat or Raincoat
Bathing Suit & Coverup
From those seven, choose four to make twice for a total of 11 garments that will work together. Those four may either be repeated garments from the same pattern, or one each from two different patterns.
I am not exactly sure what patterns I want to use, it's a good thing I have until December 26th to figure it out, but I do have an idea of what I want to do. I think that I may end up putting a few of the pieces I want to do for my FESA in here as well. Tentatively, I think I want to do a button down shirt with collar, jeans, trousers, shorts, overcoat, blouse and dress. I will probably do the blouse, dress, button down shirt with collar and shorts twice.
Off I go to plan this out now and possibly put the materials on my Black Friday shopping list.
