Version two of the SWAP includes the same basic work pieces, but uses the extra prints for dresses. The dress pattern is McCall’s 6032, which has several variations and the two-piece dress is McCall’s 6519. I also stuck the jacket from that pattern in, though the chances of my making three jackets in  couple of months are slim and I haven’t yet found a good Cognac fabric; removing the two Cognac pieces would bring this SWAP down to the official 11 pieces. Apart from the top of the two-piece dress, the tops would all be solids, so they’d go with all the bottoms.

This would use all the prints, get rid of the whole coordinating issue and introduce some variety into my wardrobe, since I rarely wear dresses. If I made the whole thing as pictures, I’d have a baker’s dozen of new garments by mid-October.
