SWAP Patterns Used

The patterns I used for my collection
The 4 knit tops and the 2 dresses are all based on New Look 6735.

For the dresses I've used the short sleeved top C and added a long flared skirt traced off a RTW dress I once had. I overlap the pieces at the waist when cutting out so there is no waist seam.
For the tops I used the long sleeved version of the top (view B), lengthened the sleeves to full length and replaced the neckband by a self drafted soft collar. I have altered the front and back pieces to accommodate my forward head/sway back/rounded upper back.

The jacket and skirt are from New Look 6082, with the skirt lengthened slightly. The jacket has been altered for my forward head/sway back/rounded upper back.

The trousers are from Burda magazine October 2008 (Burda 10/2008 #132) which I sewed in November 2009 (post on Burda10-2008-132 Pants), which are included as my previously made piece.
I wear these a lot and the fabric has held up well to laundering.
I think I shall make a matching jacket (as I still have the rest of the fabric) and have a little suit!

Congratulations on your SWAP! Though I haven't commented much, I've followed your progress with interest. NL 6735 seems to be a TNT for you. Well done!
