Winter Capsule, SWAP

Winter Sew-A-Long is going slow. I need to do 1 more item before December to stay on tract, but I’m finding it hard to do so. I guess I need to just make the time. I definitely need to get a head of the game so I can devote more time to planning for SWAP.  If I play it out well I may be able to use the SWAP trouser in my winter sew-a-long since the winter thing ends in January, and SWAP starts next month. I’ll have to check if that’s allowed. If it is, then I’ll be set.
My SWAP needs to be an add-on to the items I make in the winter sew-a-long. My plan is to have a working wardrobe that can take me through a week or two of work. The wardrobe needs to have enough pieces that allow me to alternate weeks, and not look like I’m wearing the same old outfits every week. I want a mix of heavy and light woolens and wool blends, and light weight layering items from my winter project. I also want a mix of working-casual and corporate professional since I’ll likely be working my current position, and taking on a new field (so two jobs, one wardrobe). My current position requires infrequent “professional” meet and greets, and clients. My new field is in social services, and will likely require a professional yes casual wardrobe with occasional corporate dress.
That’s all for now,
