Newsflash! I'm about to delve into the world of Sewing With A Plan and have joined with others to do the Artisan's Square SWAP2013. It officially begins December 26th and ends April 30, 2013. So, still plenty of time to join, plan and sew.
I happened on to this idea when reading about it on BeaJay's blog On the Road to Sew Wear. Check out her great ideas and plan so far.
Basically, the idea is to make two 4 or 5 piece collections, with a single other bridge garment that can be worn with both capsules. There are other rules, but not too many. You are allowed to start with one garment you already own, either sewn or purchased. I believe I will incorporate my new "across the border" top since it has all my favorite warm colors in it. For the other capsule I might bring in my cool palette colors like teal and turquoise. The bridge garment? It almost has to be a jacket in order to be worn with everything. Such problems to solve... I love it!!!
I think it will be so much fun and I'll end up with 8 to 10 new garments. ! I'm going to be sewing anyway so may as well have camaraderie and a mini-wardrobe, to boot!
I'll be posting my progress here and on Pattern Review so stay tuned!
Is anyone up for joining me on this odyssey?
