1st SWAP top done!! 10 more to go...

This is Simplicity 3634.
Simple lines, well fitting pattern.
Very easy to sew.
It looks better on me than the dress form... I also made a muslin for the pants in this pattern today.
I have a chocolate brown fabric with a copper stripe for them.... I'm using an invisible zipper instead of a lapped though... Hopefully I will get those done tomorrow.... since I've worked out all the fitting with the muslin it shouldn't be an issue.. and maybe I'll have time to start on my jacket!!! I'm so excited about it... its going to be chocolate brown trimmed with leather!!
I'm loving my colors for SWAP! Turquoise, chocolate brown, tan and black!

Congrats on your swap progress. When you do the invisible zipper application do you use an invisible zipper foot, or a regular zipper foot?
