Turquoise or teal would be a possible in that I have a suit made ages ago, which I find too ‘good’ to throw out, but which lacks friends. It’s a tweed with turquoise, mustard and a brownish flecks in it. OTH I don’t have a stack of fabric that fits with it. I’ll mull this over.

I'm getting some inspiration- as the colour images worked for me last time, how about these?


Green and blue, linked with black and white...to make and wear through this summer

Ruthie, the party just started. Might I add, Yay!!! Ruthie's here. Besides, you are such an excellent and might I add quick Sewist you could start about October 1st and be done in time. Three previously sewn items-you've got those nailed.  :toast:

I'm giving this a good think after I finish up a couple of projects. The time frame suits me quite well. I have too many plenty of patterns, an overflowing adequate fabric archive, time, etc. Also an aching back and neck but we can work around those right? For the SWAKOP cause and all.

@Manuela should we ruminate about our plans here, start a Dear Diary thread or plop the info somewhere else?

@Renegade Sewist, you can do either, have a thread in the member's diary section, post here, or both. The initial/updated plans and final submissions need to be posted here though.

@SewRuthieSews, welcome to the party  :D

I would think that separate diaries would be more readable, mentioning SWAKOP in the title, but encouraging comments to be made here for conversation p[urposes.  It's how it's done on Stitcher's Guild...no one but the diarist writes in their diary thread, chat in the main one.  How does that sound?

I’m really excited about this competition as I definitely need a bit of wardrobe planning! My mother was highly amused at me when I went to stay with her for 3 days earlier this year and took a coat and 2 jackets! It made me think about what I should be planning!

I am currently making https://www.sewdirect.com/cgi-bin/sh000003.pl?WD=6333%20butterick&PN=Butterick%2d6333%2ehtml#SID=923
so I will probably include it as a wild card. I then will have to pause in wardrobe planning to make a dress for my niece’s wedding- fabric already bought and not something that will fit with the rest.

This is the fabric for the shirtdress linked in my last post. It’s a sort of lightweight viscose, think it’s working!

I never liked that....
Many of us have their own diary thread on here, so why not use it. Alternatively, participants can post here. It doesn't make sense to have two sewing diary sections here.

I only meant to use the sewing diary section...I have three [I think] one was for the SWAP, one for the wedding dress [in bridal section] and one for non-SWAP.  We're so chatty here the threads can get really hard to follow lol

Manuela, do we have to declare our plans now or can this be something which develops as the year goes on?  I’ve got a half plan in my head but there’s not much detail in it   -<

I'd rather you post your plan here, once you're ready, you can change it as often as you want/need to...  ;)
That way we'll have all the plans in one place. You can document your progress in a member's diary thread or here...

Ahhh, got you. I do like that chatty part though, it's a great way to spark each other off and get creative  :)

hell yeah but there can be pages in a day, so if we were all also charting progress here...it gets tricky to follow one another.  Meh.  It'll work itself out :D
