sorry for the delay in my response, I had some difficulty with my computer line and only had it repaired yesterday...
Susan asked:
QuoteJust wondering, if bra-making could be my new technique and a bra could be one of my SWAP garments.  It could be worn under all the tops probably.  However, I'm not sure how I would handle the photos.
:
Alas, I must say that unless you are planning on wearing the bra as outerwear, it doesn't make an appropriate SWAP component. I recalled now that I did mention this earlier in the discussion of the rules, in reference to a query about a camisole:
QuoteWhile a garment that is worn only as underwear (such as a bra) would not be acceptable, a garment (such as a camisole) that can and will be worn as outerwear with multiple other garments (ie skirts/jackets) in your SWAP as well as an underlayer with other garments (ie dresses) in your SWAP is acceptable for a "garment that is worn with every outfit".
Perhaps at some point there could be a lingerie SWAP challenge, but again, not sure about the photo sharing aspect. That said, you have my congratulations on learning such an impressive new technique!!

Thank you for the clarification.

Hello!
As Boppingbeth mentioned waaay back in January, i sketched out a dress SWAP and i was wondering if it was too late to join?
I drafted and cut out mostly at the beginning of February, so it is still within the time frame.
Let me know of it is okay for me to post an official thread with my entry into this wonderful sewing aray!

Nikoru - it is certainly okay for you to join in... Particularly since the new revised end date for SWAP 2020 is June 30th, you will have a reasonable amount of time to sew
