SWAP 2017 update

Just an update on progress on the eleven items in different categories so far:

my premade item is a teal dress

my two early bird items are a teal jacket and a navy and white dress

My rtw item is probably going to be jeans

Over  the christmas holidays I’ve made another jacket in navy ponte, and some trousers in the same fabric. Here’s the jacket, but I’ll need to get a photo of me wearing the trousers. I’ve also cut out two tops, a pink ponte tee shirt using the Santa Monica tee pattern, designed to go under suits and a  Susie blouse in blue/white rayon.

So that’s eight items completed or in progress.  That’s 2 overs, 2 uppers, 2 rogues and 2 bottoms. I’ve used 5 patterns.

So I need 3 more items.

I’m planning another Susie blouse in the teal/blue/green Liberty tana lawn in the photo.  Also a navy wool skirt using simplicity 2451.

I’m not sure about my final item, a pink ponte jacket would be the easy option. But I like the idea of an unlined navy and white coat using simplicity 8265.

Or Cynthia Rowley pattern 1688 jacket in blue/pink tweed and I would love to squeeze a pencil skirt out of this too.

Anyway, if I get to 10 items, that’s great. I’m sure the decision will become clear!
