Here's a top from a blue and white sweater knit I bought on Monday.
It was absolutely lovely to sew, so will have to see what it is like to wear.
I bought some new brown leather boots and want to sew some
things to co-ordinate those with things I have previously made. The
inspiration fabrics from stash are all animal prints and mostly sweater
knits, so would not go with each other, but would work with existing
plain pieces and the new boots.
So for example one sweater knit
has a cream background with grey and brown print, this would let me wear
my grey Vogue 2989 ponte skirt with the new brown boots.
This is always the tricky thing for me. I come up with the SWAP plan and start on it then get distracted by shiny new things.
Do I stick to the plan to prove to you that I can do so, or do I follow the current inspiration of fun things I want to sew?
current approach is going to be stay with white thread and sew things
this week using that. I'll try to do as many SWAP garments as I can in
that time. I've already rehemmed two white curtain sets so it has been
Then give myself permission to switch over to ivory
thread on all the machines, sew some SWAP garments and also some of
these new animal print items.
Then move onto navy thread, make DBFs travel robe and my navy based things.
After that I will go to another thread colour and see what I need to sew next.
