Quote from: Morzel on February 15, 2020, 11:31:18 pmFinally I got some time to comment here on the thread - I have been reading (and commenting to myself), but never had time to type something... I only do so at my home computer with a real keypad to it, as I hate to type single fingered on a tablet or phone...@Sew Ruthie Sews : Sewing with a colour scheme only is more or less all I did for the last few years - it really is a sort of plan, I think. And fives a lot of freedom of working on your SWAP without feeling too restricted, getting bored. You´ve got quite a collection already! The latest addition, the musical shirt - are you going to wear it for choir sessions? It is great. Classic. Love the buttons on that shirt!@stephaniecan : I was struck by the unusual pockets on your shirt and instantly liked them A LOT! I also have two shirts hanging here with only buttons amiss... the least favourite task. Will do today.@dementedfairy : Classic shirts with beautiful buttons (like the non-roundness of them) - and a hidden button placket. Never tried such a one, what a good idea.@sewordinary : Your first item is so clean and crisp! And those latest fabric choices - yummy colours!@Susan in Saint John : I sewed the same Silhouette pattern a few years back. Interesting enough, I never thought about how to do the button holes as I used snaps (like Kam snaps). The pattern (again) is a great example of her bad picture choices on pattern envelopes - the blouse is a favourite of mine because of the great design detail, but is out of print- it looks outdated on the envelope. @mahgret : Love your mantra. Love the pictures of fabric with the corresponding dish on top! The latest shirt is wonderful! It is a beautiful fabric and fits you so well.@boppingbeth : Dresses! What fun. The black one looks very sophisticated! And just start on that coverstitch. It is less scary than it seems. But do remember to tie off those threads - otherwise the unraveling will start after washing... (ask how I know)@LillieT : going the same path here, I also need some smart clothes for celebrations/official events/smart events. Looking forward to seeing your collection.@warpjr1965 : so happy to hear about the already much worn pants of your SWAP. It is so satisfying. Did you get sewing done with your friends? But the, you have already quite a few items done, so no worries anyway.@KathrynT : Soo many items already sewn! Great progress. How are you doing on your new technique? AC or CC?@indigotiger : Your sewing is more artwork - beautiful things you make for yourself!@crazyquilter : how are you getting along with the top pattern? With tops?@Medea : you are probably busy with your fabric shop now? It is so exciting, I wish you all the best!!I hope all of you are sewing a bit here and there. If not, don't get discouraged by not sewing. Even sewing a once in a while for yourself is rewarding!
Quote from: Morzel on February 26, 2020, 12:44:30 pm@CCL : I rather like the look of that BEAUTIFUL coat without buttons or with the dark ones. Without buttons (and I guess with big snaps sewn to the inside?) there is always the question of the facing not anchored to the front if no buttons sewn on and sometimes this distorts the front edge... what are you thinking about?
Quote from: Morzel on February 26, 2020, 12:44:30 pmI am happy with my progress today: I sewed single welt pockets to my little jacket (I will practise the process a bit more but am very content) and bagged the lining. Trying to decide wether to edgestitch the front and lapel... but otherwise only buttonholes and buttons left. So, this jacket is of brown wool, not really what I wanted to incorporate in SWAP, but is made from left over wool of my Tania culotte. So this is a nice suit comobo and the jacket was my trial run for a blue one that is ment for SWAP. Getting a bit more confident with this jacket thing!
