SWAP, SWAP, SWAPing Along

Where have I been for a month?  Sewing, sewing and sewing (and sewing!).  I have been going great gangbusters in the sewing room.  My mojo is back and it has been demanding that I sew.  I have learned to never question the mojo, so I have been following orders.

Since we last spoke, I have created 31 garments associated with my SWAP.  As many of the patterns are new to me, in many cases I made a wearable muslin (or two) to tweak the fit and then sewed up the real deal.  I did all the muslins in fabrics that coordinate with this SWAP (or another SWAP that I am already planning for winter), so I now have a ton of new wardrobe additions for the start of the school year (which happens in one week - eek!).

Needless to say, I have a butt load of SWAP garment goodness to show you.  Just gotta dust off the camera and slap on some make up.  So, stay tuned...

I was wondering if you ever finished sewing your SWAP? At least some of them. I love your choice of patterns and would love to see them made up. Or did life overtake you like it does so many of us? Let us know if they're someplace like Pattern Review where I could go see them. You do a lot of cute clothes. And I have enjoyed reading about your sewing adventures. Keep it up.

It is 2015 now and you are still missed, at least by me. I hope to read your posts again soon.
