Thanks Sewordinary! I used a pattern from Ottobre Design 02/2013, mod.2. I've sewn this in many different fabrics and I really like the drape around the hips.

 :wave3: I'm finally back again, between the current COVID pandemic and recovering from my periodontal surgery* it has taken me a while to find my balance with "new normal" we are all living with in one way or another. I've not done any SWAP sewing at all this month, and currently the only sewing I am doing is sewing masks that a local women's clinic has begged for help with, instead. Eventually I know I will get back to my own SWAP, but right now I am allowing myself to just do what feels right.

I am considering extending the SWAP timeline, in reflection of what is happening in the world right now... what do others think? I think we did something similar during Hurricane Sandy?

*I had surgery including bone graft on March 9th, did a massive shopping on March 12th, and have been in total seclusion at home ever since. Only was able to stop taking pain meds yesterday. The OHSU dental school and all associated clinics are closed for the indefinite future, so there are none of the usual followup visits.

Dropping by to say hi! I'm in the same situation as @warpjr1965, work has escalated as we try to keep up with the ever changing situation. Hope everyone is hanging in there and staying safe!

On the sewing front, I managed to sew bound buttonholes and buttons to my jacket. Will be thinking what to sew next. It's unlikely that I will meet the SWAP deadline, but it's ok, I will sew along slowly on my own  ^-^

@Medea your tshirts are lovely! Is it self drafted or did you use a pattern?

I've been busy starting my fabric store since last time and haven't had so much sewing time. But now I'm slowly in to sewing again.
I sewed a Pussy Bow Blouse (Sew Over It) in a lovely viscose.


I also sewed a couple of T-shirts. These two are completely finished.


I've also cut a Sienna Makers Jacket in a gray Coat fabric. It'll be a nice spring jacket/coat.

I also have a Zadie Jumpsuit Dress Hack (like this one) on my sewing list and a lovely dark plum viscose, just washed and drying.
I've also find a lovely ponte jersey for a false wrap dress (mod.3 Ottobre Design 5/2019) and it's already cut and waiting.
I don't know exactly which garments that will end up in my Creative Work Wardrobe but that's one of the fun things whith sewing. I change my mind and it will probably be perfect in the end.

I know, right?  We were all going a bit stir-crazy.  Also, I was stressed out about the forum and the Etsy shop, so I couldn't just relax and go read or even sit still to sew something.  I just kept pacing 'round the house.

The dogs liked it, though.  They got in a lot of extra playtime and attention.

Things have sure gone to hell fast. Not much sewing as work has been very tense and sucks all my energy. DS is coming home this weekend from college, so that's the end of my weekend before it even started. Still, once I set up the machines I can get a few things done fast, so maybe I'll snag some time to hem up a few more items.

Stay well.

Over the past few days I made my blue vneck tshirt.

The jersey is a little more clingy than I might like, but it is comfortable.  It was my first try at a vneck with binding.  I used instructions from this book:

The book is pretty good, but both things I've used it for lately (the other one was the couture dart), I got to a point where it seemed like they assumed I knew a little more than I do.  But it worked out ok, even if I maybe didn't do exactly what they intended.

It's up and running now, but I don't know for how long.  I have a bunch of emails I'll try to answer, but if I don't get back to you please be patient.
