So I have been thinking about the "Sew Your Own Wardrobe" challenge trying to figure out how I am going to tackle this. At first, I was thinking....just sew outfits. But I could not quite rap my mind around that one.
Then I started to think back (realy think way back) on how we had to do our projects in school. So I decided to do "colllections" or mini-wardrobes. That way I can maximize on my wardrobe potential and have pieces that can coordniate with each other within the collection as well as inter-mix with other collections. This concept is also called "Sewing With A Plan" (SWAP).
So here's my SWAP...I'm thinking the base for each mini- wardrobe collection will consist of 5-6 peices:
3 - tops
2 - bottoms (any mix of skirt, pants or shorts)
2 - tops
1 - bottom (skirt, pants or shorts)
1 - dress
And then add in a light weight jacket or cardigan for the spring/summer or a coat for the fall/winter. Plus what ever other outfit, dress, shirt, pants or what every I get inspired to sew through out the year.
