Sharon loves her new Blue Collection

It is now official, I have completed my SWAP as it is not only sewing, but:
  •  taking photos of all your outfits in various combinations (165 photos),
  • selecting the ones you like, cropping  them to show the garment, as this SWAP is all about TNT Patterns and fit,
  • Finalising your photos to end up with 6 minimum and 12 maximum,
  • Adding detail to each photo of the garment type, fabric, pattern,
  • Finally emailing it all to the AnnR for it to be included on the overall SWAP page.
So last night, the email was sent and I have received confirmation that it has been received.

I did have an original idea of what I was going to do for this years SWAP and had written it down and you will see that I made a few changes along the way, so how did it all turn out?

Here are my 11 completed garments, more detailed photos have been sent to AnnR for the SWAP page.

Simplicity 2648 - Navy linen dress with pickstitching.

BWOF 02-2009-108 Knit top with Bateau Neckline with Jalie 2908 Jeans in white denim.
Vogue 8570 Burnt orange blouse with Sure Fit shorts in navy twill.
