swappety preppety

in which our plucky heroine is making plans...

The rules for SWAP 2018 have been posted! Every year around this time, over on Stitchers Guild, the planning begins for the annual Sewing With A Plan. Eleven garments, four months, a coordinated wardrobe. I completed it last year, and the clothing I made is in heavy rotation, since I have a miniscule wardrobe. This year my plan is to "Fill The Gaps" in what I need to get through a week; a few more pinafores, some cardigans, definitely blouses and dresses, and possibly a vest or jacket (those very useful third layers)
Doing my best to find enough fabrics in stash close enough in color that all work together for my neutrals. Indigo fabrics - dark indigo denim, textured weave rayon?/linen blend, indigo denim jacuqard, medium indigo rayon. Brown fabrics - baby wale corduroy, brushed twill, linen/hemp, cotton jersey. One print fabric - midcentury style floral print cotton, in indigo, russet brown, turquoise, green, and lavender. Accent colors are grey and black (not sure why the central grey fabric looks greenish).

I often use black as an accent against brown often as edge binding and/or trim. I prefer low to medium contrast to high contrast in my wardrobe. Am not 100% sure I want grey for my other accent color, but it works better than anything else I have in my stash, as I have quite a few different grey fabrics, all of which work with brown and with indigo, but not necessarily with each other.
