Forward

Boxy top is done, and in the trash!  Learning experience for sure: wrong pattern, wrong fabric. I may try the pattern again in a stiffer woven or knit, but not now.

Switching my focus to the basics of SWAP, Planning 4 iterations of Jalie 2805:

  • Split side seam mock turtleneck in a blue marled rib knit
  • Second mock turtleneck in a white rib knit
  • 2 crew neck t shirts in gray and blue, possibly with a shirt-tail hem

That should only take a few days, between pre-wash, cut, sew.  The split seam and shirt-tail hem will take longer as I don’t have a pattern and will have to draft them. That brings SWAP to:

Bottoms

  1. Pre-sewn Jalie Eleonore jeans
  2. Purchased boot leg jeans

Tops

  1. Blue Mock turtleneck
  2. White mock turtleneck
  3. Blue crew neck
  4. White crew neck

That is actually not bad. 6 of 11 items. I really need a wider variety of overs, 2 would bring me to 8 items. One more shirt is 9 items, and the black or brown Elles or Eleanores gets me to 10 or 11. That doesn’t even count the tunics I want to make!  Plenty of options, and whatever I don’t finish can be added later for a nice capsule wardrobe based on blue, brown, and black.
