SWAP 2019 / Re: SWAP 2019 - Discussion

Worked on fitting the pants this weekend. I've decided to use the Palmer-Pletsch tissue fitting method, and am bravely re-drawing the crotch seam on the pants. I still have one more tweak to go on that, then I may actually be ready to make the first actual muslin. I'll see if I can convince DD to take a few pictures.

Thanks for the encouragement, Lisanne! I am absolutely loving being able to sew again. Hopefully if I can keep up the momentum I will be able to finish or nearly finish!

Blue shirt done!



Another shirt started! (All but the collar and hems done at this point.) Fabric:



Pattern (Cartamodelli magazine):



I'm planning to make another version of the same blouse (short-sleeves) in red silk. :)

Momentum! I love it. I may not be able to walk fast, but I am pretty quick with an iron.

Still going very slowly, but it's nearly Easter break so I'll be able to zoom on then.
#5, McCall's 6436 shirt in skull print chambray.  Easy, comfortable and fun. Like me!

Love that pants pattern, Wendy. Those will look great on you! I am looking forward to seeing them made up.

There has been an awful lot going on around my house, none of it SWAP related, unfortunately.  I still have a viable plan in place to finish. I have over a week away from work, I'll be traveling for some of it, but if I am smart I can really get some things accomplished.  I plan to make up a Burda pants pattern https://www.burdastyle.com/pattern_store/patterns/cropped-wide-trousers-052017 next, I have the pattern printed already. I'll just have to get over the worry about fitting and get going on it.

Mary: I have just started checking back here and just noticed your kind comment! I love red and blue and so I am enjoying the sewing very much. I even splurged on some red silk for myself today. :)

Edited to add that I just looked at your thread and saw the wonderful blue fabrics you are considering for your simplified skirts. Lovely!

Quote from: Morzel on March 22, 2019, 02:00:20 amStephanie: good to hear you are allowed to step about, at least a bit... and I do love your blues! Blue seems to be a well used colour this year - just to my taste.

Thanks! I do love blue.

I love your design thinking and the styling of the jacket is great. Similarly, I completed my blue blouse last night and although I wanted drop shoulder it may be slightly too much. I quite like it, but the next time I'll likely adapt a bit.

I look forward to catching up on everyone's SWAPs over the weekend.
