SWAP: The Progress Part One...

Time to focus on my first attempt at a real SWAP! (Sewing With A Plan) I've actually been enjoying this process so far. The ladies over at Artisan Square are very supportive and its a great achievement for me to have kept to the plan for two items!
I get so distracted and having the plan in front of me really helps.
So the progress so far is:

  • Juniper Trousers -
  • Salme Blazer - In Progress Muslin Stage, Fabric Ready
  • Purple ponte for cardigan -
  • Airelle in purple stretch cotton Completed
  • Turquoise swiss dot for jasmine - Pattern Cut, Fabric Ready
  • Grey lawn stretch cotton Airelle 2 or Tilly's Mathilde - Bonus Project
  • Stretch dark denim for Clover pants In Progress Muslin Stage
  • Charcoal grey needlecord For Grainine moss skirt. Completed
  • purple jersey with white and pink stripe -Bonus Project (Not sure what pattern to use yet)
The Muslin for Clover could be tricky as I don't have a 3% stretch woven spare to practise with and it seems silly to buy fabric just for a muslin. I'm anticipating they will be terrible first time around as I struggle with RTW.
Keeping on track is never easy but I think that I'll have some great clothes at the end of the SWAP not to mention its stashbusting 5 fabrics which isn't too shabby!
How do you find keeping to a plan?


  1. you go girl I'm seriously impressed by the plan nd lookng forward to seeing and reading about what you make. Zora

  2. This sounds really interesting but sorry, I don't know what SWAP stands for. Could you let me know where you may have posted about it before, or link to the person who is organising your SWAP. It sounds intriguing. THanks!

    1. Nessa, it stands for Sewing With A Plan. Its a kind of competition where you sew a capsule wardrobe :) x

    2. Thanks Stevie. Sounds like a good idea!

  3. Plan's looking good! I'm actually terrible at sticking to plans, so I try to plan losely and not get upset if I don't stick to it, just get back to it later...

  4. You can discover cellphones of various colours and different
    designs in the market.
