My thoughts for this Year's SWAP

I decided early in the piece that this year I would create a work wear capsule. My workplace is smart casual and I am most comfortable in stretch type fabrics. I hate being restricted by clothing especially in the arms. I chose the colours of Autumn as that is the season we would be in at the end of SWAP. Our Autumn and winter are very mild and I mostly just add a light layer like a cardi or three quarter sleeve jacket. I have no need for Coats or heavier jumpers and jackets. I also wanted to challenge myself to use mostly fabrics that were already in my stash and at the same time restricting the number of prints used.
