Cherylanne, I love seeing photos of you in CLD garments in your wonderful, natural setting!  I would so love to visit Australia!
Just finished watching the finale on Youtube.  I think Heather deserved to win - she has the best, most consistent sewing skills, from the few episodes I was able to catch on Youtube. 
Chinello`s talent and creativity is amazing. Tamara was such interesting quirky style.

Wish I could see the episode where the yoga outfit was made (episode 7) especially since I just made a yoga top and plan to make leggings and a warmup jacket soon.
A beautiful autumn morning here and have just returned from the beach where the water is still warm.  I think I maybe able to submit a SWAP collection and these two will be included.

The  'Tommy Bahama' knock-off beach dress was made  from a navy/blue linen.  I used a size small, made it dress length, added sleeve tabs and pocket flaps.  (Thinking of adding a few darts to the back.)   The cream cotton fabric has been with me for while and I think TBP is the 'perfect' choice for a swimmer coverup.

SWAP 2014 / Re: SWAP 2014 Discussion 2

I am so far behind with my SWAP - although I have sewn other things (I do have the attention span of a goldfish!!). Can I pull my "other sews" together to form a cohesive SWAP - that is the question. I will try to buckle down over Easter and complete as I will be flat out with work after that.

Good luck to everyone on the home stretch.
I'll be back here tomorrow morning with proportions for lace & linen skirt. I've been trying my best to hang onto a cold I caught last week! :-\ So far so good. Take everything you can and a cold will stay with you for 10 days. Do nothing and it will be gone in a week and a half. I've never used so many boxes of tissues in my life!

It's 10 minutes to 9, and I'm in bed...cold is winning, me, not so much!

till later, Louise

Great Ziggi Ruth - fantastic job - that is on my list too (long term plan though - I have 2 leather jackets for the bike). My first leather jacket was this design, but was made by Walden Miller.

I love your attention to detail - even putting the strips in the zipper pull !!  Your Mum is right with one point - it looks like you could have bought it at a bike shop with the professional finish - take it as a compliment (my mum says things like that too).

I have the leather (I am using real leather) lining and cotton wadding (I had that thought too for the quilted pieces, great minds think alike) - I was also thinking of putting a kevlar lining in the sleeves (this is the most vunerable part when on a bike - dont ask how I know), maybe the whole thing - depends on the price of the kevlar fabric, I need to source that yet. 

I am also thinking of putting a zipper at the inside hem so I can zip them to my leather pants - do you think this would be a viable option with the pattern ?


Have fun sewing.

Thank you all.  I've now got the flu, so am going to put all this thinking on hold for a few days, but wanted to respond.
