Swap 2010

As you can see, I think my dark side swap is done.


As you can see, I kind of went all over the place. I’ve covered option 1. I’ve matched at least one print on these skirts and tops. I’ve used embroidered fabric from my stash and included some embroidery on the sleeves of my black wrap top (far right). This top also has a trim that I’ve used as the button enclosure.

The additional belt is used on the spot top. My aim was to get some work clothes that would be comfortable. I’ve worn most of these to work now.

The two garments above were ones that I made at the beginning of this SWAP but forgot about.


Technical stuff (or the changes I always make):

  • Sway back adjustment (2.5 cm)
  • roll shoulder adjustment (2 cm)
  • full bust adjustment (C)
  • full derrier adjustment (up to 3cm)
  • neckline gaposis (2cm)
  • armhole gaposis for sleeveless garments (2cm)
  • lowered waistline (2 cm)

Types of garments I wear to work:

  • a line skirt
  • knot tops
  • wrap tops
  • cross over tops
  • open neck polo tops
  • fitted dresses

I have one more item to make – something with an interesting closure – for closure on this SWAP. I’m so over black….
