Have you seen the new SWAP rules over on Stitcher’s Guild? Sewing for the contest officially started yesterday:
4 bottoms – jeans, pants, shorts, skirts or kilts.
6 tops – t-shirts, shirts, blouses, or camisoles.
1 jacket – a tailored blazer, jeans-style jacket, sweater or shawl will do, as long as it looks right with everything else.
All garments must be made between November 1/08 and April 30/09.
Like last year, I’m very tempted. But, the lack of at least one dress makes me hesitate. But, I did pull these fabrics together. For the most part, the fabrics are bo-ring. But, that’s EXACTLY what I need! I need basic solids that can coordinate and expand my wardrobe. I love me a print! But, dressing for work is getting harder and harder.
I don’t have many patterns actually in mind. I know all the bottoms would be pants. And, I would like this to transition me from winter to spring.
I’m not fully committed, but I’m super interested. And, I could start on Tuesday. My office is closed for the election. Not that I won’t be party hopping that night! Can I just say that I can’t take another close election? I didn’t sleep for three nights back in 2000. Either way, I’m all about landslides.
