Fall Wardrobe SWAP (Sewing With a Plan)

I was inspired by the good ladies on the Yahoo! group for Ottobre (English) to make up a sewing plan for Miss M's Fall wardrobe.  She has a few things from last year that'll still fit her, but for the most part, she needs a little of everything. Since I'm due with #2 in November, I figured joining the SWAP with a deadline of having everything finished by the end of September would probably work in my favor.

So far I have all the patterns traced and cut out.  I got the final yardages in the mail yesterday and washed 'em up so I can cut out some garments today.

I'm still not sure about the knit pants in my plan. I love them! It's just that I'm trying to not have to buy any more fabric than what I already have on hand, so I'm not sure I can find something suitable to make them out of. I did, however, scrounge up an old shirt of mine that I'll be using for the knit top you see there with a big question mark on it. AND I'm almost certain I can use the delicious chocolate brown velour that came from Chez Ami yesterday to make another  -- only I might lengthen it to a dress.  I'm sure there'll be a few other changes before I'm done, but at least it's a start!
