Style Arc Molly in grey knit

I've  split the tuck into multiple tucks, and have it on the other side, and have cuffs for the bottom of the sleeves due to fabric limitations. Otherwise it is as per pattern.

This makes a fun outfit with the red cardigan and tartan trousers.

Yesterday I had a cutting out session for about 3 hours, mostly TnTs

Refreshing the summer nightwear

- mint green PJ trousers - New Look 6216 trs
- mint green PJ top - copied from RTW.
- pale mint cropped PJ trousers - New Look 6216 trs

More for the SWAP colourway

- silk/ jersey top - New Look 6420 top
- viscose / jersey top - New Look 6216 top
- grey jersey top - Style Arc Molly
- charcoal bengaline trousers - New Look 6216 trs

Then I sewed up both
- silk/ jersey top - New Look 6420 top
- viscose / jersey top - New Look 6216 top
but I think some tweaking is required so not ready to share just yet.

warpjr1965 - you are making great progress, keep up the good work!

Mahgret - I am so sorry that you were injured, that must have been really scary! Glad that you will be healing without further issues, and hope that you have good pain medicine and get your fingers back as good as new!

KathrynT
- while I am sad that you won't be a "finalist" it sounds as if you are already a winner in that the SWAP has given you good additions to your wardrobe..

Melinda - as my friends here would say to me "just keep sewing, just keep sewing..."

Ruthie - I'm really looking forward to seeing your whole SWAP put together in one place...


I finished my teal/turquoise pinafore, and aside from it being rather more loosely fitting than I'd prefer, it is a good addition to my wardrobe. Next up will be either a grey linen pinafore, or a very simple floral popover top...

I also realised that I can frankenpattern my way into a chore coat, by using my TNT straight front blouse pattern to get the crucial shoulder/armsceye zone correct, and simply increase the length, and make sure that the sleeves are wide enough to wear over other garments. This feels much more doable than starting with an entirely new to me pattern. I can however, use all the pocketing details etc to get the chore coat "look". I just might be able to finish SWAP in time

Quick comment to myself. Coat will not get done. its OK, its June and I want to hold that til the fall. Realized I can only handle so much mustard on one garment, the Farrow is fine as it leans more toward brown, but the other fabric I have is very golden, and will not work as a dress, as I type I am just going to knock that item out altogether. It will work much better as separates.

Oh no Mahgret!! I'm glad it was only a few stitches and not worse!

I finished one item waiting for hems, and got going on finishing another. Should be able to start the Farrow dress today, and am re-working some simple ideas to get some more mustard in the collection, even if it is only one piece.

Not sure I'm going to finish.  Maggie vs the electric hedge trimmer and Maggie lost! Stitches on two fingers.  i only have 1 more piece so maybe I can make a tnt pattern after I heal.

I'm not going to finish.  One of my "goes with everything" jackets doesn't go with everything. My wardrobe really is divided into 2 sections. Jewel tones and black, and what I think of as softer colours. Most aren't soft at all, things like denim and dark grey. I've tried putting the dark grey jacket on with black pants, but end up taking it off every time. I know there is still time to make something else, but I have lost motivation.  I have enjoyed the motivation to follow some new paths and made far more than the "11".
I look forward to seeing others collections.

I've been sewing in spurts, but currently doing something themed around navy.
I have pulled a black RTW top out of my existing closet, and with that I can make enough combos to have a SWAP though I wouldn't have sewn the silk.

@indigotiger please only sew for SWAP if it brings you joy. I would love to see the teal pinafore, but only if you want to make it. There is no compulsion to complete the SWAP just because you are organising it.

Definitely wobbling here, for multiple reasons. I actually have 12 items completed or nearly completed, and if I include my jeans instead of the leggings, I could be done.

But I really want to get the Farrow dress done! I'll consider getting the muslin cut today, and then steam on with finishing the few items that need hems, etc.
