As it says I haven't yet thought of at title for my SWAP but wanted to get started to see where it takes me.

I'm planning on 2 'must go with' bottoms + 9 tops which will probably form 2 groups.  Some will go with both of the bottoms, others not.

At the moment the 2 will be black pants, and navy RTW jeans.

I'm starting with my item that can be cut and sewn after the rules announcement and finished before main sewing can commence.

So item one is a Tessuti Brooklyn coatigan in red boiled wool. I have never made a coat before or used boiled wool so perhaps that could also be the 'new to me technique'? I have another one in mind so that could also change. I cut out today and have got as far as the pocket facing stitching. All the edges are left raw apart from the side seams so the careful cutting was a slow process.

My 'sewn before 26th December' garment is finished! I took it slowly and it went together very easily and I'm pleased with the result. As it's red it's just in time to be worn over Christmas. Photos to follow when the daylight is bright.
