As far as allowing "accessories", while there is no reason to not use accessories when photographing for SWAP, the focus of Sewing With A Plan has always been on garments, as they are the basic building blocks of a wardrobe (the "cake" as it were, for which the accessories are the "frosting"). Also, as someone who personally sews a number of my own accessories such as hats and bags, I also know that accessories are a lot faster to make than garments, and require significantly less in the way of "fitting".
QuoteI really do enjoy the planning -- perhaps more than the making, or at least the fitting.... and apparently she speaks for a number of us, certainly I feel that way! That is part of what I am currently enjoying about coming up with the rules for SWAP 2020, in that I need to do a LOT of planning to try and figure out rules that will work for various sorts of wardrobes and styles (as opposed to what I usually do to figure out how to adapt "the rules" to my own quirky personal wardrobe needs). I am glad to read that people are starting to look at their current clothing and think about what will be useful to fill gaps or to take care of a previously unmet need, such as a vacation/travel wardrobe, or refurbished professional clothing, or simply replacing now worn out favorites.
