2007 PR SWAP

I'm up and running with the SWAP. First here are my fabric choices:

I spent last Sunday night figuring this out. What fun this was to go through my stash figuring combinations, editing and planning for future sewing. I still haven't figured out how to set up a storyboard, but here are my choices for my SWAP :

Simplicity 4328 view D (light mustard cotton pique)
Burda 8483 view B (black linen)

Material Things Fearless Shirt #106 view C (2 shirts, 1 white, 1 light mustard)
Hotpatterns Deco Vibes Tango Blouses (green bubble print)
Hotpatterns Miss Moneypenny Pussycat Blouse (black, tan, white print)

Dress: Deco Vibe Cosmopolitan Dress (black, white, green, beige print)

Burda WOF 4/2007 143 skirt (green linen)
LaFred Iris Skirt view B (black silk)
JSM Pant 1 (2 pants) (1 black silk, 1 tan cotton stretch)

I am really psyched about this SWAP. These ideas have been kicking around in my head for awhile--this contest has made me put my thoughts into action. I still have fabrics which coordinate with this SWAP, but first I have to concentrate on getting through this. I'll save them for next spring, since by the time this SWAP ends, I'll be ready to start thinking about a fall SWAP.

Marilyn, you're blogging!!!! Yeah!!!

Your SWAP is coming along well, and I can't wait to see some of it made up.

As for the top I made with the fabric I got from you, I think it is one of my favorites ever. I'm thinking of making up the peachy-rose fabric from you as a twist top too for my PR SWAP.
