I’m really excited about this competition as I definitely need a bit of wardrobe planning! My mother was highly amused at me when I went to stay with her for 3 days earlier this year and took a coat and 2 jackets! It made me think about what I should be planning!

I am currently making https://www.sewdirect.com/cgi-bin/sh000003.pl?WD=6333%20butterick&PN=Butterick%2d6333%2ehtml#SID=923
so I will probably include it as a wild card. I then will have to pause in wardrobe planning to make a dress for my niece’s wedding- fabric already bought and not something that will fit with the rest.

This is the fabric for the shirtdress linked in my last post. It’s a sort of lightweight viscose, think it’s working!

I would think that separate diaries would be more readable, mentioning SWAKOP in the title, but encouraging comments to be made here for conversation p[urposes.  It's how it's done on Stitcher's Guild...no one but the diarist writes in their diary thread, chat in the main one.  How does that sound?

I never liked that....
Many of us have their own diary thread on here, so why not use it. Alternatively, participants can post here. It doesn't make sense to have two sewing diary sections here.

I only meant to use the sewing diary section...I have three [I think] one was for the SWAP, one for the wedding dress [in bridal section] and one for non-SWAP.  We're so chatty here the threads can get really hard to follow lol

Manuela, do we have to declare our plans now or can this be something which develops as the year goes on?  I’ve got a half plan in my head but there’s not much detail in it   -<

I'd rather you post your plan here, once you're ready, you can change it as often as you want/need to...  ;)
That way we'll have all the plans in one place. You can document your progress in a member's diary thread or here...

Ahhh, got you. I do like that chatty part though, it's a great way to spark each other off and get creative  :)

hell yeah but there can be pages in a day, so if we were all also charting progress here...it gets tricky to follow one another.  Meh.  It'll work itself out :D

Does any of your groups coordinate with one other group? If the answer is yes, you're fine when it comes to the rules.  :)

It will do - I’m planning for Groups 1 and 3 to coordinate. My one concern is the wild card but if that won’t work I could replace it with something else.

I'll save my planning for when I get it more or less coordinated.  I seriously doubt all of you want to see 40+ catwalk looks, the evolution to what I want to wear, patterns to match/draft and the several rounds of fabric choices not to mention the whole "inspiration" of he collection BS.  I could fill several pages on just my own plans, lol.

But question:  I do an actual mood board in real life...would it be okay if I wind up taking a pic of that mess and then listing my plans in word form?  Cause if not...well, I have mentioned I am insane.

That'll be perfectly fine  ;)

It will sort out.  :loveit:  I'll start a diary at some point. Later I'll put up a plan here, as at the moment it would be:
  • Group 1: 3 garments
  • Group 2: 3 garments
  • Group 3: 3 more garments, best go with other stuff
  • Wild Card: something else to wear with the rest.  ><

It's slightly more evolved than that but I need to pin some things down.

@Kwaaked a photo of your mood board would be lovely. I've forgotten; do you have a blog where you could post your abundant research if it feels like too much for here?

Regardless of how this all shapes up it will be fun. It already is!!! :toast:

I do and don't.  The one I have is in the process of being shut down and the business one isn't up yet.

I'm sure I could get it posted somewhere, but usually it's a tl;dr no one curr type of process.
