QuoteMel, I am sure our trusty leader will chime in, but I believe we are basically sewing 2 groups of items: 9-10 separates that may, but do not have to coordinate, 1-2 items that MUST coordinate with everything else. I actually read that as implying they must also coordinate with each other, but Indigotiger please correct if I am wrong!"1-2 items that MUST coordinate with everything else. I actually read that as implying they must also coordinate with each other"... ummm they need not coordinate with each other, as long as they each are wearable with and coordinate with the rest of the wardrobe you create.
QuoteI thought that two items had to go with everything else, except for each other? IE: two skirts, or a skirt and pants for example, and they had to go with all of the other nine items?If you choose two "go with everything" items then yes, they must be wearable with all the rest of the wardrobe ie nine items... but if you choose to have only one "go with everything item", then you need to have one more coordinate ie ten items. It just depends on what works best for each persons clothing style...
QuoteAs I had understood it, we can have one item that goes with everything else, or if we choose two items that have to co-ordinate with everything else in the collection, these two don't have to go with each other (e.g. it could be two jackets that can't be layered), but the two jackets would have to individually go with each of the other nine items in the collection (which don't necessarily all have to go together individually, e.g. there could be several dresses that of course would not be worn together).You have this exactly correct, as I had intended it to function.
