  • Pencil Skirt from Ottobre Woman a long time ago. Stretchy jeans fabric
  • Cézembre Blouse in white patterned single jersey

Since last time...

Now it's already the end of April and Stitcher's Guild's SWAP is closing on next Sunday, the 7th May. I haven't sewn all the things I planned for but I sewn some other garments. Maybe I'll manage to finished all of them completely before Sunday.
I've started to put my garments in a sudoku board to make my outfits. Let's see how it works.

My sewing list

These are the garments I plan to sew in the near future. The dress and the black shirt is already cut and the red skirt is sewn. So maybe I'll start with these when I come home in the end of February. I really need one or two new pencil skirts in jeans fabric so these  need a high priority. And the long cardigan will be a fast project so I will cut that before the printed Granville Shirt even if I really want to wear it.
There will be a sewing marathon when I finally reach my french home in a couple of weeks.

Winter 6 PAC

These are my latest finished garments. I haven't sewn for more than a month but before christmas I finished these.
The black pencil skirt is one of my early garments for my SWAP at Stitcher's Guild's yearly swap contest and I will soon start to sew more of what I planned. The only problem is that all my fabrics are in my french home and I will not come there until the end of February.
I used these patterns:
Navy blue pencil skirt in heavy jersey; Kirsty Jupe from La Maison Victor.
Top in the same navy blue jersey: Pattern from Stof & Stil, same as the dress in this post.
Cézembre blouse in a single jersey: Anne Kerdiles Couture.
Navy blue wrap cardigan in a blue angora wool knit: Pattern from Papercut Patterns.
Gertie's Pencil Skirt from her first book.
Plantain Tee from Deer & Doe Patterns
Aldaia Dress från Pauline Alice.

Stitcher's Guild

I've missed Stitcher's Guild since the site is down. But today I found a blog post about it at Ruthie's place and then I went to Pattern Review to read more about it. You'll find the thread here.

6 PAC planning

I'm not only planning for the SWAP2017 but also for the 6PAC sewing for winter. I thought at first that I would only sew garments from my swap2017 collection but I realized that I want to sew more than two items before the grand contest starts. Two garments is allowed to sew before the 26th December.
Winter 6 PAC
In this 6 PAC I still have my long cardigan i navy woolknit, a pencil skirt and a Plantain Tee. But I've added an Aldaia Dress in black jersey and a Quart Coat in a lovely navy wool. I need these garments right away so I've already started with pattern fitting and I'm cutting out the dress in this minute.
