Quote from: Saashka on October 03, 2018, 06:01:10 pmIt would be nice to have previous rules as examples for those who need to be provided some structure, but otherwise I'd like to see collections that make sense for the wearer's real life. And they could come with a short write-up of how the collection came to be.
Quote from: mudcat on October 03, 2018, 09:14:29 pmAs DL mentioned elsewhere I've agreed to be the coordinator again this year though I'm afraid it will be difficult to find a better SWAP than last year. Anyway, I'm paying attention to the comments.
Quote from: Saashka on October 03, 2018, 06:01:10 pmI would like to see SWAP rules that don't require three-piece outfits because so many people don't wear them (climate, strong preference for dresses, other reasons...). With colors, maybe have a minimum or not even that - the spectrum runs the gamut from people who are perfectly happy in monochromatic neutral outfits to those who wear the whole colorwheel all at once.

Doesn't need to work with the capsule or other wildcard. But does need to fill a gap. Eg that dressing gown, a cocktail dress, replacing worn out LBD, use pattern 1234 again as it looks so good on you, a couple of tops that go with the orphaned coloured jeans
Quote3. 'Big bang': start with one outfit (whatever), sew single garments that go with any one garment of one original outfit set. So your collection 'grows' outward from the original outfit. This could become a collection (eg. if you stick to a certain colour and silhouette theme), but could also be a loose collection of garments, that all nevertheless have some other piece to wear it with.
