In January I made this jacket, but its a bit of an orphan, so I'd like to use some of the co-ordinating fabrics to make a mini wardrobe. I may not actually include the jacket in the final collection but its part of the inspiration for my collection.

The colour palette for the collection is wider than the jacket, inspired by this silk fabric from my resources, which I plan to use in the SWAP in one (or more) garments.
The silk has at least 5 colours - light red, dark red, white, several greys and black.

So in terms of items which must co-ordinate with all of the others, I think a red cardigan and a black cardigan or coat would be good.

This year I think I might try making a dress as the rules are quite helpful for that, and fill the rest of the spots with an assortment of bottoms and tops, one of the tops will be silk (new for me).

I will endeavour to branch out a little in terms of the patterns I use, and not just reuse the same TnTs over and over!

I'm going to sew with silk as my 'new' technique but I thought that maybe another little extra could be pockets in absolutely everything, which means I'd need to learn how to sew pockets in knits (which I generally avoid).
