  7. Fabulous SWAP, Robin...I particularly like the two-piece "dresses"...so versatile. And I love your poses in your photos; I have to take some lessons from you and Shams so I don't look so "wooden"...

  8. I am really impressed with this wardrobe. Not too matchy matchy as some SWAPs are, but perfectly coordinated, versatile and stylish.

  12. Wow! Your finished SWAP is awesome! I had decided that perhaps it was impossible to finish one of these things, but then you had the nerve to go and ruin my excuse with your fabulosity. ;-)

  16. Wow! You did it! And each piece looks so nice and so wearable. It's easy, even fun to start a swap, but I don't know many people who finish them. What's up next? Something completely frivolous?

  18. fantastic SWAP Robin, what a great wardrobe, I am not sure I have the discipline to do a SWAP because I get distracted too easily - good luck.

  19. Love your swap. Some great basics and accent pieces. Good work Robin. I never succeed in a planned wardrobe, can see your enthousiasm for sewing without plan for now.

  23. Brava! A great wardrobe of basics that fit beautifully. I've done two swaps and that was enough. I can understand your wanting to be spontaneous in your sewing for awhile!

  24. Robin - you look lovely (as usual). You have made some great pieces. Kudos to the hubby!!

  25. Wonderful wardrobe, Robin! Ya dun good!

  26. Very stylish, very versatile new wardrobe! Good on ya'. Thanks for making the effort to show us so many of the wearing options. (And, nice to see photographic evidence of your DH.) I'm thinking -- hard -- about how to use some simple, basic patterns to make reversible clothing for a vacation trip, in which space is at a premium for luggage. Would the Susan skirt work double-sided, if each side were made of very thin fabric, dost thou thinketh? I like the way it is flared at the bottom, fitted at the top. All my previous efforts involved baggy elastic-waisted pants and dirndl skirts, and no-dart woven tees. I want better options this decade.

  31. I've a non-sewer who never visited your blog before (came over from Visible Monday), and I'm just still in shock that you made all of these. Beautiful items! And you, like, MADE them, yourself. I'm in awe. Thanks for sharing.

  33. I love this so much - Robin, you've done such a great job! I love how you've made these amazing separates, and pulled together - they make such a fun, versatile wardrobe. (Ok, I'm also very envious.) And I love your photos as well - they are all so fun. Great job - it's been a blast watching you do the SWAP the last few months. (And I hear you - I'm ready for some seriously unplanned sewing as well!)

  38. Hi Robin, thanks for your comment. Your SWAP is more than impressive, especially considering I read that you had to cull your sewing down to just eleven pieces. You're actually a big reason I participated this year. I've lurked here for awhile, and when you started talking about this SWAP, I figured it was just the thing to improve my sewing skills and get me all tangled up with a great group of sewing enthusiasts in the Stitcher's Guild. I wasn't as chatty in the forums as I hoped I'd be (I think I was nervous I wouldn't finish), but I am ever so thankful this SWAP at least got me to start participating over there. I enjoy following along with your sewing adventures, and I look forward to reading along with your next sewing adventures.
