Here we SWAP again!

Patternreview is having a SWAP contest and of course I have to join! I´m good at joining! Last time; the mini wardrobe I actually finished the pants, a Burda drawstringpants from 2004 that looks like the Marakesch (marocko ) pants from Hot Pattern. Since I trust Burda for pants ( raise the waist 1 inch mid back ) I used this pattern again and I absolutely hate the color!!!
Anyway this swap is a new page and you should make 4 tops, 4 bottoms, 1 topper and 1 free of choise. All tops must go with all bottoms and the topper etc etc. This time my plan was to make denim jeans and a denim skirt that I should try to distress, then I´ll add a petticoat, not to cupcake like and a drawstring pant, the one as above in an off white color, maybee mid calf lenght.
For the tops I will make tunic dresses in different fabrics a little mix and match, including some embroidery etc ( read Odd Molly ) and going through my stash I will have to buy a lot of fabrics for this. I´m going to Paris last weekend of May so that´s something to look for
The topper will be a shrug from Onion and the optional garment the cardiwrap "everyone" is doing these days.
Contest starts June first and last until end of August. 10 garments in three months. I can do that! maybee

Hi Karin,
I can't find anything about it on Patternreview - but then again, it's Monday morning. Could you post a link? Thanks :-)

Studid me... I found it now. You called it SWAP, that's the reason I couldn't find it, because the SWAP's are usually done on Stitcher's Guild, and theirs is just finished. Anyway, thanks for the tip, I might actually participate in this one.
