@Hilda Rose - thank you for the binding idea  :)

@treefrog - take care, I hope things improve really soon.

@CCL - your "comfy-never-leave-the-house" dress looks great.

I'm going to be decorating one of our bedrooms so will need to store some stuff in my sewing room - so I've stopped work on the jacket temporarily and have been cutting out lots of muslins and some tnt patterns before I need to fold away my cutting table to free up space.  Once I move stuff from that bedroom into my sewing room I'm not going to be able to get the table up again until the decorating is finished and I want to have lots of projects available in the pipeline.  Sewing and enjoying all the other SWAP projects is keeping me sane in these weird times.

@CCL - great fit with your dress. Heavy knits = bulky hems that are hard to get right, but you've conquered that hem!

@warpjr1965 - love the yellow textured skirt!

@Turquoise - lots of internal work going on with your jacket. I admire you skill & patience. Regarding your S1113 "sporty" sleeveless top: would folding the wide bindings to the outside and stitching them down give it a dressier finish? Many RTW tops have this finish & Style Arc patterns use it a lot too.

@sharonspils - your shorts look great. Hope you enjoy Dubbo Zoo. Hot at this time of year, so shorts are a great choice.

@Melinda_B - hoping you happily sew your way through lockdown & that the bush fires aren't impacting you. I made the Style Arc free mask pattern when Brisbane was in lockdown last month... it's a good pattern & I like that it had lots of sizes (my 13y.o. has a narrow face and most masks are too wide). Bought some nose bridge strip things off eBay to sew in.

@Pagog - your patterned tops look lovely. That Kwik Sew pattern is on my post-SWAP sewing list for winter. The striped fabric really sets it off! I can't stand high necks either.

@Turquoise, thanks for the suggestion. I'll have a look at that one as well.

Hi Everyone,  sorry I've been so quiet.  I've been a bit stressed out and not very talkative.  It's great to see so many lovely garments.  I'm loving the sunny yellow pieces.

I've been making a bit of progress.  My intention was to have the "blue group" finished in January, but I'm still trying to settle on a pattern for the floral top.  The second pair of jeans are finished.  It is the same pattern I used for the lightweight pair, but this time in a heavier but stretchier denim.  I had to reduce the width and crotch height a bit to account for the stretch



For February, I'd like to get the "cream group" finished as these are perfect for hot days. 



I've deviated a little by making a pair of linen jeans with a bit of a flare.  It was an experiment using the rub-off technique to get a pattern from a RTW linen jean I bought over 20 years ago.  It was a lot easier to do than I expected and worked really well. 

The kimono T is self-drafted and loose fitting

@Turquoise  Love to see the tailoring process. Looks wonderful!

@Karamiel I look forward to seeing the completed dress.

@sharonspils The shorts look great. I made a pair of linen shorts last year but they still need some tweaking. I still wore them all summer!

@CCL The pink/red cozy dress looks...very cozy! The fit looks great, too.

@Pagog Love the tops. I really like the gathered details at the yoke of the blouse.

@warpjr1965 Way to hit the ground running. I love your golden skirt!

@Turquoise - Thanks for the compliments and the advice. I have pretty much decided I was going to eliminate the placket and button cuff on the sleeve and just do a band - will solve that problem.  I also haven't decided how I'm going to close the front - was leaning towards fabric loops and buttons.  Still very much a work in progress, even in the planning stage. 

@warpjr1965 - I do love a circle skirt - yours is gorgeous!
