Now that I’m wrapping up my Work Wardrobe SWAP, with just the Kwik Sew 3199 blouse to finish, I’ve been thinking and planning future sewing projects. I’m actually contemplating starting a new SWAP. I think it’s too late for me to enter the PR wardrobe contest, but again, I like going at my own pace without the pressure of a deadline.
I’m thinking PINK, and I have my storyboard and fabrics all picked out. I’ll post it soon. This SWAP will be a mixture of work and casual clothes, and I will attempt to sew my first pair of jeans using McCall’s 5142. I also have a UFO or two that will be additions to this SWAP.
I told myself I wouldn’t do this–buy fabric without a specific purpose–but I was feeling kind of down, and I bought two lovely selections from Gorgeous Fabrics:
This shirting will be for New Look 6704 (view B or C), and will make a nice addition to my already conceptualized “In the Pink” SWAP. There was also another fabric I bought from Gorgeous Fabrics, a pink/black/gray floral jersey that I may make into a dress, but I could not find the picture. I’ll post a pic later once I get the fabric in, which should be any day now! 🙂
I also bought this delicious ribboned crinkled blue chiffon from Fabric.com. I couldn’t resist.
I thought it would make a lovely Burda 1-2008-108 blouse (sans bow tie).
Well, that’s all that’s going on for me right now. Take it easy, and happy sewing!
