SWAP 2020 / Re: SWAP 2020 general discussi...
Last post by stephaniecan - Yesterday at 12:29:39 pm
@indigotiger : I think the idea of a teal pinafore is lovely, as is the floral blouse.

I don't think you need to feel obligated to complete a collection, although I am hoping to complete mine to honour your effort and great rules this year.

I understand the feelings that some have about sewing at this time and sometimes wobble myself, but on the other hand, I have a feeling (for myself) that giving up the things I love to do would not be a good outcome. Things are difficult because I can't see my partner or family and will be alone for quite some time, but on the other hand I am still kicking and have supplies already at home so it is OK to take pleasure in those things. :)

I'm glad to see that folks are still finding relevance and stitchery joy in participating in SWAP, as we go into the final month of garment sewing. Wishing you all success in the next few weeks!

I have another three garments yet to sew for my own SWAP, so I'd best not spend all the spare time online, but instead at least go cut something out. Even if no one but me sees it, having a new teal pinafore and floral blouse will hopefully bring a bit of brightness into life. I've really been struggling with getting myself motivated to sew, (other than sewing masks, which is both depressing to my spirit and painful for my hands) but I have been telling myself that it would be mighty embarrassing if the SWAP coordinator didn't sew a completed SWAP this year!

OK so things are progressing, but I have no idea how it is going to fit together. I nearly expired from heat exhaustion last week :) so I made myself some shorts this weekend. I also completed the red, white and blue skirt:

Mahgret: It's a lovely style on you.

Ruthie: I feel your confusion as I have the most all over the map colour scheme ever at the moment.

Oh no I've changed colourway on my sewing machines. Its now navy blue which does not go with my SWAP at all!

I have a successful bodice from Brooks Ann too -- but no sleeves.  Over the next little while, I am going to be comparing the results of these 2 classes and I hope to be able to come away from that exercise with a sleeveless and sleeved bodice/top/shirt block.

Quote from: Lisanne on May 20, 2020, 02:27:02 amSusan in St John - I am very interested by your mention of the Alexandra Morgan fitting class

I have a successful bodice from Brooks Ann Camper's Top Class, but I do need to add some sleeves for it to be useful - and I have unusual armholes.
Does the Alexandra Morgan class deal with that, or assume armholes are a standard shape ?
Thanks.

The armholes start out as a standard shape but by the time you totally customize the pattern, you have custom armholes and custom sleeves to fit them. It may take a couple of samples to work this out.  I have to say that this is absolutely the best course I have ever taken on fitting and I highly recommend it.  It is well worth $300 CAD.

Thanks! I want to make it again but all of my other SWAP fabrics are a little too stiff for the gathers to lay nicely. I've really come to appreciate Style Arc patterns in this SWAP.

Mahgret, I really like that style of tunic on you (Style Arc Jules) and the colour is great (amd the matching mask).

Looks great!  I am still trying to adjust to wearing a mask.
