SWAP 2018

I am hoping to revisit SWAP 2018 and regenerate my interest in fitting something into the rules.
Rules can stifle or encourage creativity, and I'm really hoping to display the latter repsonse.

This was my original plan to meet the rules which can be found here
http://artisanssquare.com/sg/index.php?topic=1082.0

Plan:
Choose two neutral colors
Add one accent color and two prints OR two accent colors and one print
Make at least three garments from each neutral color
Make at least one garment from each accent color
Make at least one garment from each print
Remaining two garments may be made from any one or combination of your neutrals, accent(s) and/or print(s)
Create multiple outfits of at least two garments that work for your personal style
Each garment must work with a minimum of two outfits

Optional Accessory: add one self-made accessory as a signature piece that works with at least two of  your outfits

Rules
Sewing begins on 26 December 2017 and ends 30 April 2018
One garment may be started on 1 November 2017 and completed prior to 26 December 2017
One garment may be completed prior to 1 November 2017
One RTW garment may be included
Garments knitted, crocheted or woven by you may be included (limit of two since we are a sewing site)
Garments such as poncho, cape or wrap must include at least two pattern pieces, be one of your knitted, crocheted or woven items or have stitch work done by you to be considered a garment (otherwise it’s an accessory)
Neutrals do not need to be the same fabric, however, they do need to work together  **
One garment may be completed prior to 1 November 2017
Candidates (can have only one, or could have something even older)

17th October - burgundy sweater knit top
24th October - burgundy spot top
 30th October - burgundy top
 

One garment may be started on 1 November 2017 and completed prior to 26 December 2017

Candidates (can have only one)

5th November - claret cardigan
5th November - burgundy print top
19th November - teal velvet tops

23rd December - teal cardigan


Sewing begins on 26 December 2017 and ends 30 April 2018

29th December - turquoise top
and obviously sewing will be ongoing until 30th April (which seems a VERY long way away at the moment).
I will decide later which two items make the premade slots as I really would have liked both of the cardigans, for some reason I thought the claret cardigan was completed early enough but sadly no.
