I actually really like the idea of doing a SWAP where every top goes with every bottom. This is always in the back of my mind, but it seldom happens in real life. ...

just for fun I went back and looked at my own earliest SWAP, from 2005, which also met those critera:I remember how much I struggled to get the "jean jacket" pattern to fit me. It took five toiles to make the pattern alterations to get the shoulders and armscye shapes to match the disparity between my very narrow shoulder width and my far too bodacious bosom! That aside, the wardrobe I made that year was one where every single top could be worn with any of the four bottoms, and the jean jacket could be worn over any of them. My goal that year was to make a casual transition season wardrobe, and it was very successful. All those pieces were worn frequently until they were too worn out to be mended, which took a few years
