So many beautiful, detailed collections appearing!
I seem to have racked up 9 of my planned items, but not even started on trousers or waistcoat, which should be the star of the show...too many choices!
Loving all your subtle details Indigotiger

Polo neck #4 made, cream rib jersey, very slightly brushed, a lovely texture.  I grafted in a sleeve from a vintage 60s pattern, and made a rib cuff, and I'm really pleased with the effect.
Now I've stalled after starting a white lawn shirt as I can't decide on the sleeve embellishment technique I want to try...
Maybe I should cut out trouser toiles [BORING]
Oooh I know, I could cut out my World Book Day costume instead!
Teaser pic of the white sewing so far...!


And a close up of the appliqué blouse

Indigotiger, that is indeed nice sewing!
Noum, I do like the crushed velvet cardigan, looks luscious and I love the colors!

I have lost some mojo, after the sewing extravaganza of last week. I need to tidy up the sewing area again, and then I think i'll pick up some steam.

The black/grey gingham flannel shirt is completed, and my guesstimate for how long to make the sleeves turned out to be just right. I will be making a note of that on the pattern for future reference, and foresee some additional shirts (as opposed to blouses) in my future sewing at some point...
The collar and neckline of the shirt, showing two different sides of the polkadot fabric (yoke facing, and bias binding along collar shirt seam), bias and straight-of-grain use of the gingham flannel.
The successful tower placket, both closed (above), and open (below)...again showing how I used the polkadot fabric to line the cuff and also to create the inner placket.

This is the maxi cardigan in a stretch crush velvet, worn with my Jalie Eleonore jeans and a purchased top that I eventually intend to copy. I am definitely making more of this pattern, and will try a knee length version next, as this one is too long to fit under a coat. I do plan to make a coat for the SWAP, but it's unlikely to be long enough to cover this.

These are the fabrics I think I will use for the gym outfit. It's a bit dark here, so the photo shows them a bit darker and more yellow than IRL.

Quote from: warpjr1965 on February 17, 2020, 08:14:50 pmI have to say I find this competition difficult to follow, or maybe its that the challenges aren't following a logical (in my mind) progression. Just seems all over the map to me, but I guess that is not so different from the GBSB.
To my mind that's deliberate - the people who get through to the final round need to be able to display a wide range of skills and garment types !

Yes, I am sure that is the intent. I think there are just so many contestants, who interpret each challenge differently, that I would find it hard to choose!

The blouse with cherry blossom appliqués is done, and I just ran up another polo top, white this time, with crinkle jersey sleeves.  Simple, but effective.  I'll get round to some pictures eventually!
Now back to the machine for white/cream polo neck #2

Wow - cool printing, @indigotiger . I also like that tower placket tutorial. I had to laugh because I have made a lot of tower plackets in that I have made a lot of shirts, but last night I struggled with a version of a tower placket on my silk shirt. The silk was really causing me some grief. :)
