Theme: T-Shirt & Jeans Upgrades

Inspiration: the book The T-Shirt & Jeans Handbook: Stylish Upgrades for Your Daily Uniform

My challenge will be centered on Jackets, there are many things I have never done. I hope to make a lined Jacket using a Pamela Howard Craftsy/Bluprint class.

The wardrobe basics are Jeans & T-Shirts.

1 Pair of Dark wash jeans purchased, will go with everything

1 Pair of Red Stretch Denim Style Arc Linda Pants , will go with everything

3 T-shirts, colors and pattern to be determined
   possibly CJ patterns baseware 2, blue bamboo knit, navy/white stripe knit (purchase)
   McCall 6963 view B, eggshell crepe knit

The wardrobe upgrades are Jackets & Cardigans.

1 Chambray Shirt Pattern to be determined, have several pieces of fabric

1 Jalie Helene Cardigan - Camel Ponte

3 Jackets, Options: Style Arc Stacie Jean Jacket, Vogue 7975, Simplicity 2446, I may make multiples of one or more of these jackets. I have lots of different types of fabrics that are possibilities.

1 more item to be determined, probably an animal print cardigan.

If I can get through the fittings I think I can pull this SWAP off.


I've moved the Chambray shirt down to the upgrade section because it can double as a jacket.

First Priority is to get Simplicity 2446 traced.

Potentially I can make three different type jackets with this one using Craftsy/Bluprint Classes:

          A lined Wool Crepe Jacket - Modern Jacket Techniques with Pamela Howard

          A quilted Jacket - The Fashionably Quilted Jacket with Mary Ray

          A double knit Jacket - Next-Level Knits: Techniques for Structure & Style with Pamela Howard
