Quote from: undefinedI'm assuming from the second recipe that you gave, that the item(s) that must co-ordinate, don't necessarily need to be able to be worn with all the other pieces, but look like they belong to the set.
QuoteNeed to put some deep thought into the two that have to go with everything from the first set.
Quote from: undefinedThere is one non-freedom - every one who is thinking they might participate needs to start an individual thread before December 26th, with their theme. So everyone must post an individual thread ? and no-one can decide after December 26th to join in ? or change their mind about their theme ?
Quote from: mudcat on November 01, 2019, 01:27:26 amSo if I understand this correctly, I could make 1-2 pants/skirts in black and then 9-10 tops in prints (or solids) that work with black. Or am I missing something here.Alternatively, I could make a black cardigan and 10 dresses of various prints/colors that work with black.
QuoteThe biggest stumbling block for me right now is trying to figure out a new technique to try. I'm having trouble coming up with something I'd like that I've never tried.
Quote1. Would a fabric type we've never sewn before count as a new technique? For example, I've never worked with silk charmeuse.
Quote2. Would a garment that can be worn as an undergarment or garment be our one thing that goes with everything else?... If I make a silk camisole that can be worn as a top with skirts / jackets, but under dresses as an under garment, is that allowable?
Quote from: mahgret on November 02, 2019, 01:41:32 pmI have a pattern for a crossfront top, which includes a little tank for modesty. I was planning to count that as one garment, since I would not wear either piece without the other. Is this ok?
Quote...with this SWAP is that I can make multiples of one item (I think?)...
Quote from: undefinedClarification - do we need to use a new technique/fabric/methodology for every single garment? Because I think that might be rather difficult to do it to that extreme.
Quote from: undefinedcould I use 'buy nothing' as my theme? Or is that too vague?
Quote from: indigotiger on November 05, 2019, 12:11:07 amOh gosh certainly not!! While if someone wanted to use something new-to-them in every garment that would not be forbidden, I specifically phrased it as "in one (or more)" to try and make it clear that the "stretch your skills" aspect need only apply to one garment. My intention was to gently encourage folks to try something new, or to improve something they had maybe tried but wanted better results
QuoteIt seems as if the must item has to be limited to two only, in order to make the rules work...is this correct,
