SWAP Roundup

Here is the final tally for my entry in the Timmel SWAP competition. Rules required 6 tops (can sub up to 2 dresses), 4 bottoms, and a jacket. This year, three different garments must be made from the same pattern. A maximum of 2 previously sewn pieces, and one RTW item, can be included.

Black, White, and SWAP All Over: This year I wanted to make some knit basics, wearable but with some zing, in a color scheme that I’d really wear. I threw around a few ideas and ended up with black and white, two colors I wear a lot separately, together and with every other color under the sun. My wardrobe pattern was Butterick 5190, a knit wardrobe pattern with cardigan, tank top and dress, skirt and pants.
