I never got around to sewing my Fall SWAP 2014, and I still have a bunch of other projects to work on, but I am hoping to make a Spring SWAP again this year. I did so last year, and have enjoyed the pieces I made.


Here are Pantone’s Spring 2015 colors for women.

And then I’m going to sew up several pairs of linen pants using the Marrakesh Pants from Hot Patterns.


A trip around the blogosphere suggests that they are easy and work for all sizes and shapes. I figure they’ll be a more interesting alternative to jeans for days at the computer.

I’ll do another Sunshine Top and a couple of peasant blouses or tunics.




No skirts. I rarely end up wearing them, to tell the truth. And one jacket will be enough. This is the plan.
