I'm just not sure.. I can't sew, so I would offer my knitting skills.. However.. to make kinetted clothing takes a great amount of time.. And I just don't know if I can do it.. But it sounds so fun.. I'll think about it Wink

I'd like to know what people are wishing for, too.

I'm a decent sewer, but I usually make my own patterns, which would be difficult with people on the other side of the world.

Can we reconstruct clothes? Are people asking for accessories?

Thanks!

that was my question entirely.... can we just alter or embellish clothes and make them into "rockstar" type clothes or do we have to make them all by all?

this swap sounds so cool, but i was wondering that myself.  are we restricted to sewing entirely from scratch, or reconstructing?  i was under the impression that it was sewing from scratch entirely.

I'm offering my knitting skills for this one, but I'm not a excelent knitter. I have problems with lacing, for example. But I can do most of the simple things and I'm a fast knitter. I can't sew, so I'd love a halter, or circular skirt, or even a-line skirt.. I've seen suche great skirts around here.. But I'm thinking of letting my partner do whatever she wants Smiley

We can be open to both reconstuction and sewing/knitting... People are asking for knitted things so don't worry. Some are more time consuming and some are simple thigs. You will have your partners measurements so you can always go to a thrift store, find something and reconstruct. No one is asking for bags but they are asking for arm warmers, shrugs... I'm going to try my best to match people up accordingly but you will probably need to contact your partner and ask questions. suggestions are welcome, I want everyone to be happy.

I'm really excited for this swap, and for an awesome summer project wahoo!! I wanted to post this measurement guide to help swapees:





Hopefully this will help partners become familiar with each others shapes & sizes since everyone is different.  I know we all go through hell trying to find clothing that fit!!!

What kind of things are people requesting, hawaiilove? And what are people saying that they want to make, if you don't mind my asking.

I want to join, but I can only think of one thing to request! I'll keep thinking on it, though.

People are asking for knitted things but we have no knitters! I'm going to pair people up as best as I can. Everyone put three items so there are two other items to choose from. I will pair everyone up tomorrow or Friday.

Its ok, there are a few people that actually can knit even though they are better seamstresses. I will pair them up with people who want simple knitted items. Sorry, no one will be getting a knitted sweater or anything but I will make sure we all get something cool!

PArtners!!! I had a hard time figuring out how to pair people up and decided to do it according to body type. I figured that would be easiest and you can email your partner if you have questions about what they like. The exception is Triggerchick, your the onely girl with a teeny body so I gave you someone who said they'd like embellished clothing. Maybe you can hit the thrift store of something and spiff something up. Anyway, I hope evryone has fun!

she had a family situation come up but its been weeks so I'm wondering if she's still in. She's logged on but has not answered my pm's. I'm going to try once more. I know she's signed up for a bunch of swaps so it would suck if she flakes.
