SWAP 2019 / Re: SWAP 2019 - Discussion

Quote from: Morzel on May 13, 2019, 11:38:18 pmSo, how do the SWAP pieces work out for you this year? Wearing them? Are those of you who did not finish end of april still sewing? And content with what you sewed up to then? How about those who dropped out because of medical issues (angelsweb, Melinda, bobbingbeth), how are you doing? 

I currently have my mother staying with us for ten days.  She lives on the other side of the country, so we usually only see each other for a few days at Christmas time.   ;D  ;D  ;D  ;D  ;D   

My legs are healing well, and I'm on a graduated return to running program - which I've already managed to overdo and wear myself out.  No injuries, just a very tired body.  I underestimated how much fitness I had lost.

Winter has just started to bite here, so most of my SWAP plans are unsuitable for the cold (relative cold, it only gets to about 5°C here at it's coldest).  I'm currently in need of bottoms to wear to work, and trying not to wear trousers.  When mum leaves next week I have plans to spend the following couple of weeks restocking my work wardrobe, and probably some active wear - Jalie is releasing new patterns in the next few days.

Thanks for asking Morzel!  :heart:

As always, your questions are really thoughtful, Morzel. I hope the others who dropped out because of life or health interferences are doing well.

I am also thinking of my next collection! I have a couple of ideas already.

I can't wear my garments yet as we are having an unseasonably cool spring in Florence. I have been sticking to jeans and shirts and pullovers, which is OK.

I always sew for mixed uses, so all of my garments will find a place in the rotation of my wardrobe. The red dress has already been worn to concerts and dinner. The red jacket I really made to jazz up a few outfits. I love it with jeans or casual pants when I want to feel bright and cheerful. The silk blouses I made for a combination of work and casual wear in summer as it gets very hot and humid and so the kimono sleeves make the tops airy. They can be worn to work with a jacket to protect from air con. The skirts and casual grey capris I can see being worn either dressed up or with striped tees and ballet flats when cruising around the city doing errands. Lots of options.

For next year I want to make a coat or trench and have a wonderful idea for a series of other linked garments! Fun!

In my head I am working on my next collection, for summer vacation. We will be in the Alps, I need hiking pants. And a rain jacket.

So if they're already sorted correctly we're good?  Bless Dragon Lady for figuring it out...

Everyone who uploads photos needs to name them with an identical SWAP name and a number, as has been done in the past. After, they will be sorted into subcategories by DL or one of the other admins. 

At this point everyone seems to be properly categorized though you might want to scroll through them.

For anyone adding photos today: Everyone who uploads photos needs to name them with an identical SWAP name and a number, as has been done in the past. After, they will be sorted into subcategories by DL or one of the other admins.
 
stephaniecan, I'll have to let DL respond to you.  As near as I can tell yours seem fine. They are subcategorized and i can scroll through them.

Hi DL
Sorry, it's not clear to me if I need to change anything to adhere to the rules. My garment photos are numbered so hopefully that is enough.
