Well, Ran into a standstill on my SWAP...as my fellow swapper Syndi put it, the race was fun, but I got burnt out... I lost my SWAP mojo....Until... DH showed me this website: Indian Village Mall They have an enormous collection of Native American items... I am very drawn to Native American art and culture, and love the clothing. I had just completed a Red Motorcycle Outfit In this Previous Post that had a Dream Catcher and some Feather embroidery on it. Once I saw that website and the denim shirts they show, It all of a sudden hit me...I could build my other half of SWAP into a southwestern/Native American collection - I already had two tops and two bottoms for that side. (Once I cleared that my vest was a top, too, since it is worn that way, with no indecency.) So I could make one of these shirts and have that as my third top, then make the bridging Native American Poncho which would also go with all my moto gear on the other side of my collection, and Poof! my SWAP is done. So, I couldn't summon the courage/energy to find a pattern and fabric to make the shirt I wanted, so I purchased a denim shirt and will embellish that. the SWAP rules allow for a purchased item, so it will be legal, and the embellishing is what makes it fit the collection. And I can't wait to make it!.
Bought the shirt - a burgundy - so it goes with my made jeans as well as my made skirt.
