Mini wardrobe sew along

I decided to join the Mini wardrobe sew along on PR. I chosed the sewalong instead of the competition becourse it´s already mid May and I´m going on a long weekend to Poland next weekend. I´m going on a spa thing to Gdansk.
The rules for the miniwardrobe is that you should pick an orphan from your closet and make a wardrobe for it. 4 thing and it should work together etc etc...
This is my orphan! It´s an Onion 1036 jacket and the reason it became an orfhan is that the color is a cross between burgundy and purple and doesn´t go with my purple nor my burgundy stuff.

My first item in the sewalong is the Karin goes Karin blouse. I bought lace becourse the first one I colored wasn´t enought and then I bought a new lace becourse I wasn´t really satisfied with the second one. This last one is colored too. I also got a striped trim for the sleeves and I´m using this Burda 2975 pattern in size 36-38 and it is still a little too big for me. Hey I could use a size 0 with this sizing!... I´m working on another blouse right now using this pattern. My plan is to iron the crinkling out of the fabric, cut it and when finished spray it with water and the crinkling will appear again and make the blouse slightly smaller. This might be an OOP pattern.

The second item is a skirt using Onion 3020 in the same fabric. My plan here is to use the smallest size and cut 10 pieces instead of 8 and put elastic in the waist
The third item is this McCall 5586 in a kind of slinky burgundy knit. I think I go with view C so I can wear a proper bra under. I might even make in longer to a tunic

The last item is this wrap pants Onion 4010 in the striped flowery fabric in viscose. I´m not making them full lenght, I´m doing what in Denmark is called "sock pants" a good explaination!

And then we came to the fabrics: from the left; pants, blouse and skirt with lace and trim for blouse and the the burgundy knit for the top

But I actually gonna finish the peasanttop I´m working on right now first and then I have to decide if the mikromacrame dress is going to be a tunic instead...
