the guidelines are excellently planned.
I have only sewed two garments for me so far this year, of all the items in my original SWAP plan. One was the ill fated but still
But my everyday wardrobe is, while not unworkably sparse, still scant in some aspects... I have plenty of long sleeve knit tops to wear layered under pinafores in cold weather, and a Useful Abundance of pinafores as well, but nowhere near enough popovers to wear in the summer, and almost no transitional season garments like dresses, or blouses to wear with pinafores. My grey cotton lightweight cardigan is wearing out, and my actual knitted wool sweaters are rising twenty years old and looking a little threadbare. And after a year, my one swimsuit is looking very bleached from pool chlorine.
As warmer weather is coming I could use half a dozen transitional tops, and four or five summer popover dresses. One or two swimsuits would be a good enticement for my water exercise and PT. I can get by with my current cardigans and jackets for now, but want to think about at least three new ones, either knitted, or sewn, in black/grey, indigo, and brown/blue. A new flannel nightgown will be needed before next winter. Before next autumn I am going to sew up the plaid wool pinafore that coordinates perfectly with my Alabama Chanin cardigan, but it really isn't needed now. I will also think about a few underlayers for next year, loose pants and/or underdress/slips.
