SWAP 2018 Complete

All done with SWAP!  I managed to squeak out the last garment with 2 hours to go. I am a master procrastinator!

Here is my assessment of the whole process, copied from the Stitcher’s Guild website:

 

Neutral one BROWN:

1. Tan Jalie Eleonore jeans DONE
2. Brown Elle pants DONE
3. Previously sewn: linen Plantain tee DONE
4. Ecru knit Shirt No. 1 DONE

Neutral two BLUE

5. Pullover hoodie (Meg McElwee’s Craftsy class) DONE
6. Blue jeans, purchased DONE
7. Skirt (RTW copy, same fabric as hoodie) DONE

Print coral/blue/yellow jersey
8. Plantain tee DONE
9. Tank (RTW copy) DONE

 

Print 2 Brown patchwork burnout
10. Tank (RTW copy) DONE

 

Color pop: coral stretch jersey

11. Tank top (RTW copy) DONE

Number of patterns used: 6
Number of new patterns: 3 (including 2 RTW copies drafted during SWAP)
New things learned/tried: Stabilizing a loose knit while finishing a seam, creating a binding for seam finishing on interior.

Every single one of these patterns I will use again. I don’t think there is a single “Hmm, maybe I won’t wear this as much as I thought” item in the lot. I think they all work together much better than any group of items I have sewn. This has to have been my most successful SWAP to date, IMO.

Clearly I am not a professional blogger. I am not going to mess around with the pictures, I can’t get them the same size!

 

My favorite makes: the hoodie, coral tank, pull on jeans, and Elle pants. I love them all!  The floral shirts are cozy, and I wear them a lot for work, which means they will probably wear out quickly.  That’s OK. They were quick makes.

 

Next up is another Sewing With A Plan, through The Sewing Place message board. This one is similar, 10 garments, with a sewing time frame from May to October. I am planning on participating in this one too.
