Having been a keen followers of SWAP and similar wardrobe sewimg approaches I have currently gone free range and am following a programme I made up randomly called 'Sewing Whatever I Want'.
This basically consists of just making whatever I want to do next, and as long as it works with at least one thing I already own its OK. In the case of a dress that means I need to have shoes and maybe a purchased jacket etc.
Whilst this lacks the structure and drive of an online contest its quite good fun.
Currently in the pipeline is a navy blue knit top which is a fairly classic scoop neck but has a bit of ruched self fabric detail on the front. OK so I can sew whatever I want but I'm keeping it wearable and relatively tasteful.
