SWAP - sewing with a plan - has now started over on Stitchers Guild. Actually sewing started yesterday but I've been away for Christmas and only got home last night.
I do have several knit items cut out, so would like to sew those up to get some feeling of progress, before moving on to a test piece and then to my navy boiled wool jacket!
The boiled wool jacket changes the plan a bit as I only bought enough for a jacket, not a skirt as well, so no suit. But I have several trouser lengths so will be making up one of those instead.
I shall make things up to a certain point and then re-evaluate and see what would work to complete the plan.
Looks like it has quite a lot of cool weather clothing (which works 8 months of the year here anyway!) so I want to get things sewn up and in wardrobe rotation as soon as I can. That may not be the best way for SWAP as there may be laundry accidents etc but the clothes are for wearing not admiring, so I want to use them at the right time of year.
After all the new year parties are done I'm going to have a look at following the 'Gi Diet' as it looks one of the healthier ways to eat and lose a little weight. I also want to make the effort to be more active. Depending on how well that goes I may need to alter the bottoms a little as I seem to fluctuate more on the waist and hips but I'm not going to let that stop me - either on the sewing or on the healthy eating front.
