Even though there is a very corporate dress environment at my job - Fridays are casual. I wanted to incoporate this aspect into my SWAP also. To me this was the easiest part of planning the SWAP.
The Casual Friday garments all come from pieces that are part of other outfits except for the black and white jumper. Even though jumpers were trendy last fall, I included it in my plan as part of my Casual Friday gear. The other pieces just came together from there.
*Black and white jumper
*Two pairs of black lined pants
*Sewing Workshop Mission Tank
*Dana Silhouettes Tank
*Black/white wool blend for jumper
*Cotton blend for Dana top
*Sandwashed silk for tank

See how much I like this pattern. I have used it twice in this collection. This is just the dress minus the sleeves. The patterns for the tops will be discussed in a different post.
I thought I would need to alter the armholes so that tops would fit comfortably through them, but there was enough space and it worked out fine. I did detail how I put the lining in the jumper in this post. And I added a slim black piping to the neckline and armholes to give the edges some distinction.

How I plan to wear the Casual Friday looks:
1. Jumper and shirt underneath the jumper
2. Jumper and shirt over the jumper
3. White shirt, Sewing Workshop Mission Tank & Pants
4. Dana Top & Pants
5. White shirt, Dana top & Pants
6. White shirt alone over the pants
And that's Day Five - Casual Fridays....
