|2013 SWAP PLAN|
This is the first draft of my 2013 SWAP plan. We are required to sew two smaller capsules of either 4 or five garments and one linking item. The completed SWAP could be 9, 10 or 11 articles depending on the mix of garments. We have about 4 months to complete.
I first thought of Ying and Yang: dark and light
day and night
work and play
emotional and practical
good and bad
leather and lace
The problem for me was the linking item.... I could not get a jacket to work with both collection if both collections were really different and for different purposes. (unable to make a jacket in the individual collections) So I had to change my thinking. I have collected a lot of fabric, patterns and ideas, so I decided that I wanted to use some of my 'nicer fabric' and some of those 'get around to it ideas'. I want a few silk shirts, shells, a simple dress and a 'killer' jacket/coat. I think I can make most pieces from silk, with an exception or two.
Aims of SWAP 2013 : smart casual collection
: made from beautiful fabric (silks)
: bold and bright

|Hot Pattern Jacket. |
I have intended to make this jacket for a while... The thick navy silk has been with me for 10 years!
