That seems like a good start. I came up with seven patterns! That is pretty amazing. When I sewed a SWAP in 2008, I don't think any of my patterns were fitted yet. When I look back, I got an enormous
sewing boost from participating in SWAP 2008. I still wear some of those garments regularly, too.
I wonder what it would be like to sew for a few months without tackling ANY new patterns. That seems like a novel idea - what do you think?
It seems like having 7 TNT patterns is not very many when I read blogs of people who might sew 30 different patterns in a year (and they all fit beautifully). But for me, this is pretty special. Yep, this is some gooood sheet, man.
