Christmas Top?



we're moving the day after tomorrow so no more sewing :-( for a bit but have been reading some Burda mags, and found this top in June 2008 which I thought would be great in a stretch knit with some sparkle for Christmas.

SWAP Stage 1: update

Modifications to original plan

My original plan was drawn up without consulting with fabric reality, as such I have been unable to find suitable fabrics for a few of the garments, but found other fabrics which could be used in the SWAP instead.

Original plan - staying the same
Pinstripe jacket
Pinstripe pants
Pinstripe skirt
Plain dark pants
Ivory satin wrap blouse
Turquoise wrapover top
White/teal print scoop neck tee

Additions
Turquoise crinkle skirt
Turquoise floral print blouse.
Turquoise knit top
Teal/charcoal scoop neck top

Move into Stage 2
Plain dark skirt moves into Stage2
Cowl neck sweater in sweater knit moves to Stage 2 (difficult to fit under jacket)

Deletions
Ivory knit shell is removed as no suitable fabric
Dark plain blouse removed as no suitable fabric

I will draw up a new plan over the weekend and post it when its ready.
