Going in the opposite direction - aiming for maximum simplicity :
assemble a wardrobe of 11 garments which can be worn as at least 12 outfits.
Does this bring you joy, calm, confidence  :D  if not, try something else.

Ooh, I really like this time of year, waiting for the rules to come out. I think Lisanne's suggestion of making something of a favourite silhouette is really nice. I worked through Colette's Wardrobe Architect a couple of years ago and I got The Curated Closet as a gift a couple of months ago.

But the Algebra Swap theme is also attractive.
I think I will spend some time look at my fabrics, thinking of sudoko wardrobe planning and how to combine everything.
I'm in a period of weight loss so I need some new clothes because some of them, especially my skirts are beginning to hang loose.
I really look forward to the beginning of November when the rules will come out.

I borrowed Ruthie Sews's idea of looking back at past Swaps to see what worked for me... I completed two: the algebra SWAP - which was easy for me to figure out. And the one announced in 2014 November which became my two year Slow Sewing SWAP for Better Half, which I loved because I wanted to make all the garments, but knew they were time consuming and I would need some "me sewing" time in between tasks.    A longer time frame would never work for the competition,  but I liked how having that plan let me come back to the more difficult pieces when I was ready to tackle them.  Having that plan in place really helped me keep chugging along.

Also, doing the SWAPs and 6-pac sewing  have taught me that, when making new  patterns I need to go through three stages...1) muslin for fitting and to work through construction; 2) a first make in a fabric which if failed will not break my heart, and then 3) a  third make which is usually something I am a little more happy with.

Other random thoughts:
  • The algebra SWAP could help with the seasonal problem, with the three pacs addressing different seasons. 
  • Although I do agree with IndigoTiger, I found I wear the pink print skirt I made at the last moment just to fulfill the rules and meet the deadline has become a staple of my wardrobe...and is now in need of being replaced. 
  • If I try to do SWAP in the timeframe again, I will need to fight my tendency to skip details that would make the garments more useful to me just so I could finish on time.  I have two lovely pairs of trousers from that first SWAP that even though I wear them, I would wear them more if they had front slash pockets.

A personal goal I set last summer was to make one dress a month and one cardigan/jacket/vest every other month. Not begun yet... ::)

Oh yes to that one!

I had limited sewing time over an extended period and managed to find a few RTW pieces with adequate fit so I am reasonably clothed, as such I need my sewing to be more careful hole filling and less lots and lots of new clothes.

Although we won't know until the rules are posted what the actual details of the upcoming SWAP will be, I have already decided on my theme for 2018: Filling The Holes

As part of my ongoing declutter, now in its fourth year, I have rearranged the contents of my dresser and closet, which makes it a lot easier for me to see what I have and where the gaps are. I am much closer to my long held goal of having enough outfits so I can go for a week without having to do laundry. Since I have even longer held to a limited color palette for my sewing and my fabric stash, it should be will hopefully be possible for whatever the SWAP requires to also be both coordinated with my current wardrobe, and to create "11 garments which can be worn as at least 12 outfits"

that is not all that difficult. 7 garments will make 12 outfits. formula is 3x2x2. 3 tops, 2 bottoms, 2 layers. or change the mix, but same total number of pieces.

Yes I know , but I'm always surprised by how many wardrobe stylists proudly proclaim that they have made 10 outfits from 10 garments, as if it was difficult. . . 
Even 10 dresses and 1 layer can in theory make 20 outfits  ;D

I've been playing, and I think the maximum number you can make from 11 garments is :
4 tops, 4 bottoms, 3 layers = 64 outfits.
More if some layers can be worn together, such as pullover layer with vest, jacket with vest.
It gets quite challenging to work out all the possible combinations.

And then there's personal opinion about which combinations actually look good. . .

So Good Luck and Best Wishes to our coordinator  ;D

and personal opinion about which you feel comfortable in. I don't care too much about having lots of bottoms, but a large number of tops is essential to me, and then nice warm cardigans or vests, easy to layer.

what I noticed when looking through what I currently have, and what is lacking, is that I have an abundance of pinafores (my "bottom" garment), not quite enough dresses, not enough tops, and a definite shortage of layering garments. This reflects my difficulty with getting patterns to fit, and a gradual wearing out of my handknit sweaters... Therefore between now and the beginning of SWAP, I had best get off my duff and back in the sewing room trying to fit the Tabula Rasa pattern... and maybe start knitting a sweater, which could theoretically be completed between now and the end of April.

Indigotiger - sorry but somewhere along the line I've missed why you're trying to fit the Tabula Rasa rather than a conventional armhole.  I have a 'difficult armhole' and suspect I would find the Tabula Rasa very difficult to fit, while I know what to do with a conventional armhole.
I know this is off topic so perhaps we could open up your fitting thread again.

I get that.  I keep my bottoms pretty bland and forgettable. Dont need too many, but they must fit well. Tops OTOH I do all my embellishment and play.  They can be very distinctive.  I think I need more of them.

I generally get turned off by a lot of rules, but I wouldn't want that to stop me from playing along with SWAP. One thing that I found last year in planning my SWAP, was that the clothes that I needed/wanted would have actually fit under multiple rule scenarios. So, I think I'll figure out what to sew and then see if it fits the rules later.

I don't like a lot of rules either. I prefer guidelines with ideas for those who need them but enough flexibility that everyone can join in.  It's important to make garments that you like and will wear though it does sometimes happen that I buy or make something that I'm not initially enthusiastic about but had a need for  and over time it becomes a go to item.

Since my pants are the item most likely to be a solid I prefer them to be less plain.

People have different preferences in wardrobing advice.
The Wardrobe Architect - url above - is a free blog post series from Colette patterns, supposed to be worked on over a year.

The Curated Closet book or kindle expects you to do a whole lot of written analysis - there's even a separate work book with tables to fill in.  I found that didn't suit my style, but that may be because I've done so much previous work on wardrobing that I didn't find such detailed analysis helpful.

They're both about garment choices / wardrobe planning, not about sewing or pattern choices.

In both cases I confess I enjoyed reading and thinking about the ideas, but didn't do the exercises suggested. . .

Diane in WV, just as Lisanne said both these websites/books are most for analysing your wardrobe. At this time I've gone through my style a couple of time and think that I know my signature style. But before I did the analyse I had a wardrobe with many "wild cards" and the analyse helped me to condense the garment's to what I really love to wear.
Even the Curated Closet has it's web version. You can find Anushka Rees /Into-mind website at anuschkarees.com/

Compare with Indigotiger who does all all her embellishment on her pinafores = bottoms !

Not surprising we admire whoever volunteers to be coordinator  ;D

Has the SWAP coordinator been announced yet? I really hope it is not a secret like last year. That suspense doesnt let sewers emotionally plan ahead, and seems rather contrived IMO.

Hope the rules are also stated soon, for many like to plan for quite a while. What fun this will be.

If I was coordinator (which I hope I will never be  ;D) I would want to take a while seeing what concerns are expressed here before finalising the rules.  And I don't mind allowing her (?) privacy until the rules are announced.  There will enough to cope with after that !

I wouldn't be the SWAP co-ordinator! I suspect I lack the needed grace to answer all the questions which arise immediately after  the rules are published.
The rules always seem fairly straightforward to me, and I can plan stuff round them, but there seem so many picky little questions about things which always seem to me to be excuses for not following the rules that I would find it very hard to answer them all nicely, and not find myself banned for rudeness :-)

So Saint SWAP Co-ordinator has my respect and support for what I see as a tricky job. Good luck and thank you.

I'm the same Ruthie, I have to leave the board for a while after the rules are posted or I get steam coming out of my ears.   But I accept that there are times when people are much in need of certainty - I am myself at times, just not about SWAP  ;D
So Thanks to the coordinator for dealing with all that.

oh gosh no, I wouldn't want to be SWAP coordinator. All that "Can I make a SWAP entirely out of underwear?"/"I don't wear layers"/"I only wear layers" I'd be telling them exactly what I thought.
Sorry if I've stepped on anyone's toes - and yes I've asked a few silly questions myself.
Having a good think about what I would like to make myself, not sure, but having fun.
One thing I think I might do is reserve the top post of my own thread for the pictures of the most up to date version of my SWAP and modify it as I progress.

Anxiously waiting the rules. I already have some plans in mind. I always need to replace a pair of pants or t-shirts for work, I wear them weekly, so they don't last long. I'm wanting to try a few new things in my wardrobe, so I'm hoping SWAP rules will be manageable for me.

I agree whole heartedly.....that anyone taking on the role as SWAP coordinator has, IMO, reached Sainthood!  I truly understand that some need clarification and reassurance to assure they are not our side of the boundaries, but I cannot imagine the hours the coordinator puts in to address all the issues. Whoever volunteers has my full support and praise.

I'm looking forward to the rules.  I made a couple new skirts and blouses for fall, but my wardrobe is basically the same 5-6 outfits, rotated.  I only work 4 days a week so I don't have to repeat at work, usually.  I am open to any rules, except ones that insist on a pair of pants.  I like skirts and dresses.

A winter wish list:
Work:  skirts- corduroy; blouses- silky  I have very easy patterns for TNT blouse and skirt.
Home: comfy skirts & tops - I saw a very comfy looking fleece skirt last winter.  I might even be interested in making some knit pants.
Church: some new pretty dresses that are only for church-  I currently wear my work clothes and would like something specifically for Sunday.
Layers: some cardis or lightweight jackets would be nice.
Outside: a snow skirt, jacket, possibly a parka-  I took a short community schools class on sewing fur and it continues again in January/February.  I would like to incorporate some of those new skills into cuffs and ruffs. 

One of the problems I have is that my personal thermometer has steadily run hot for the last couple of years.  Winter is coming here and even with temps in the low 20's F and a dusting of snow, I am still only wearing a 3/4 sleeve cardi over a silky blouse. 

A summer wish list:
Work: dresses- cotton or linen
Home:  linen or very lightweight denim pants/ cotton summer tops
Sunday:  Spring dresses
Layer:  crochet lace cardi
Outside: rain coat

*OR*

A Linen Only SWAP: I have linen or linen-look in natural, white, tan, pale blue, pale pink, pale yellow, and white with blue and black thread stripes.

I am the Saint.  ;D

I will be posting the rules as soon as DL has the SWAP 2018 forum section setup which she will do towards the end of the month.

I volunteered because I never finish SWAPs and had decided not to participate but I'm quite pleased with the rules so I'll probably follow along.  I've been tweaking the rules over the last few days and may (or may not) continue to tweak them as additional comments are made.  I've tried to be thorough and cover all potential questions.  The rules will provide quite a bit of flexibility but still have some constraints to ensure it is within the spirit of the whole point of doing SWAP.

As typical, the rules will include a previously sewn item (completed prior to the posting of the rules), one item between the posting of the rules and 26 December and one purchased item.  Hint: consider completing a basic item over the next couple of days in a neutral color that you think you'll be using in the SWAP for your previously sewn item.

Great new Mudcat thanks for taking on the job.

I had better sew up the burgundy tee I was planning then :-) I should get sewing time tonight and Sunday night hopefully.
