Timmel's SWAP (Sewing With A Plan) 2007 competition

I have been a big fan of the SWAP (Sewing with a plan) concept for a while now, but decided to take the plunge and enter the official Timmel SWAP this year.
As I am in the UK and Timmel's is in Canada I ordered independant patterns rather than fabric.
My SWAP is in toning colours of teal and chocolate with a splash of turquoise, ivory and burnt orange.
The competition began on 1st December and so far I have started sewing one garment - a skirt to be my reversible item (this year's twist).

Here's my plan for the 2007 SWAP as it was written down on 3rd December 2006. I'll leave it up and see how closely I followed it when we get to the end of sewing time in March!

Teal weave wool jacket - oop Burda 3064 (a UFO started 4/5 years ago)
Brown/indigo denim reversible skirt - Butterick 3972
Teal side zip pants - New Look 6054
Brown side zip pants - New Look 6054
Teal gored skirt - Loes Hinse pattern from Timmel
Burnt orange blouse - oop New Look 6315
Wrap blouse in teal/brown print - Butterick 4659
Princess seam blouse in ivory or teal stripes - Butterick 4659
Knit tops in - teal burnout velvet, teal/brown print, turquoise using one or more of Jalie crossover top from Timmel, Simplicity 4076, Butterick 3344

Ruthie your SWAP will be beautiful. The colors you have chosen are lovely . I love the skirt you have chosen for your reversible item. One of these days I'll do a SWAP but not right now. Have fun.

Kathy, thanks for your comment. I'm still working on the best way to share the SWAP with anyone who is interested. I'll update when the skirt is finished.
