Here is a article talking about what I mean.

The idea is you plan your wardrobe around a few prints and solids and Sew with that in mind.  You start with these 11 garments. 
2 pairs of pants
2 skirts, one in a solid colour, one in a print or check
2 simple tops, one solid, one in the above print
4 tops, in colours which coordinate with the solids
1 simple cardigan jacket in a solid colour

Anybody up for it.

That is so funny!  I was going to post the same thing.  I read about the one at Timmel fabrics, but was too late.  There is a contest that just started at Pattern Review:  http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/sewingclasses/board.pl

I would love to join the contest but the problem lies in that I was going to re-construct a few items.  Most would be vastly altered with details that take as much time as a garment from scratch.  But I love the idea of making a coordinating wardrobe.

I think reconstructed things would be good.  I don't want to join a contest. But the stuff they made in the Timmel contest was gorgeous.

Trying to pick a couple of patterns and then I am going to pick some fabric I like.

I was thinking of Navy for one of my main colours because Jean works with NAvy.

Count me in!
       I'm actually planing to sew "travelling wardrobe"
for 1-2 monthes holidays in South East Asia. I have to be
very careful of choosing the right fabric. It has to be cool enough
to wear in 90-100 F and be able to wash&dry overnight. Shorts and
sleeveless tops are not allow in temples and palace. And everything has to go with sandles/shoe string type of shoes.

I'm very exciting! and my deathline is June 23.

Have you craftsters continued with the sew with a plan along?  I'd love to see more...fabrics, patterns, etc.

I love the idea of this, has anyone made progress?

I have been looking at the thread on Pattern Review. Just wondering about how you avoid it being boring if you are sticking to a few colours. I am going to Russia on holiday in the autumn and am wondering about attempting a swap for that.

I am saving money to buy fabric

I wonder if you'll have issues here for using the term sew with a plan it's awfully close to sewing with a plan, there was a big issue over at patternreview because of the contest name "Sewing with a Plan".  The contest had its name changed because of problems with regards to people claiming the name as their own intellectual property. Very interesting.
