SWAP 2012: Angled Poise

Well I've got some (indoor) photos and am about to send them off to Ann Rowley for inclusion on the overall SWAP page.
Here's my original mood board
and here's me wearing the final pieces (won't be on the SWAP pages, but I love these combination type shots).
As ever a SWAP morphs a bit as it gets sewn up and as the time ticks away, with the deadline loomed ever closer!

Slightly hard to see in my tiny pictures but the pieces are
1.    Drape Front Cardigan, black and white sweater knit, based on New Look 6735 View A with draped peplum. (CARDIGAN 1)
2.    Scoop neck knit top,  black and white sweater knit, New Look 6735 View B (KNIT TOP 1)
3.    Multi length skirt, black ponte, Rhonda’s All Points Skirt (SKIRT 1)
4.    Scoop neck knit top, viscose print jersey, New Look 6735 View C (KNIT TOP 1)
5.    Drape front cardigan, black ponte, based on New Look 6735 View A with draped peplum. (CARDIGAN 2)
6.    Knot front dress, viscose print jersey, New Look 6071 (DRESS 1)
7.    Knot front dress, black ponte, New Look 6071 (DRESS 2)

You really epitomize the "Plan" aspect of SWAP. I follow your collections all the time and I like how you plan colours and silhouettes that mesh together so nicely. Very inspiring.

Love your SWAP collection. They always look so much better on you than on the hanger. Nice work Ruthie.
