I'm so glad to see we are getting more people signed up!  I just wanted to say that sewing for someone you don't know can be hard, but is not impossible.  I have made tiered, patchwork skirts and a peasant blouse for partners, as well as bags, and of course the ever easy earrings and bracelets, etc.  Granted they are not close-fitted, but there are many other things you can make:  PJ/lounge pants, sundresses, tank tops, shorts, comfy gowns, etc.  so don't let that stop you from signing up!  We'll have fun!

I have a stupid hard time finding clothing to fit my body, especially dresses and shirts that fit right.

My problem is my chest. =(  I have a 34DD chest, so if anything fits up top everything is really baggy around the middle.

Same here. To get it to fit in the bust, you have to go up a size, then it's too big in the waist, sleeves, everywhere else. Or if it fits everywhere else, it gaps open in the front or pulls really tight. Even a lot of plus size clothes are not proportioned for busty gals.

I have noticed that a lot of tops seem too short in the front, after the boobs take up so much fabric. I have had to lengthen a lot of my tops. Plus a lot of fabric shrinks in length. Boy, are there a lot of reasons to make your own clothes!

I REALLY want to do this swap, but I'm a novice sew'er and have NO experience with patterns (not to mention that the hand me down sewing machine I had was taken for repairs and still isn't working)... I could make something felted, some simple jewelery, or something crocheted... will have to think on this one a bit!!

I wouldn't object to moving the send-out a bit, I was actually really torn with the date selection. I didn't want people to procrastinate with a far off date, but then again I understand somethings take time....

If you'd like to join but the only thing stopping you is the send out date I have no problem extending it until the end of June or maybe July 2nd? Those who are done early could always send out early...

Any thoughts swappers?

I would totally join if the date was extended.

I'd feel more comfortable making something to be worn with more time.

Questionnaire sent! And yes, I'd be fine extending the deadline or giving my partner more time for a more time-consuming item. Jump in, DV!
