The Endless Summer SWAP

Living in Queensland means I have an almost constant need for hot weather clothing. I thought I might have a crack at next year's SWAP, but I'm keen to start adding pieces to my wardrobe right now. The weather is heating up quickly and I don't have anything to wear! So, I'm going to make a start now and see where the plan takes me. Maybe I'll be able to make something work for the time constraints, maybe not. But at least I'll have some clothes to wear this summer!

This is my plan. I'm going to start on the tops first as I have the greatest need for those. 

The colour scheme I'd like to try to work with is navy, green and off-white. I'm going to sew from stash as much as possible, so that might mean a few things aren't as perfectly co-ordinated as they could be. I'm OK with that. 

This is my 'vision' for the SWAP - as close as I could get anyway. ☺
I've already made the grey/white top and have purchased the navy shorts. I'm going to start on the navy top next (after a quick project for my daughter).


  1. I love this plan! I am on the other side of the globe, and live in an area which is hot most of the time (Arizona). I have had to modify my wardrobe since moving here.

    1. It's hard to make an big adjustment to your wardrobe, isn't it? I'm fairly lucky in that respect as I've grown up here. My problem is that I love to sew, and wear, winter clothes! I suspect it's a 'grass is greener' kind of thing. Thanks for visiting!

  2. Love your plan Kelley! The colours are great and the styles are perfect for you.
