SWAP 2018 rules are out

I love this time of year when the rules for the coming SWAP Contest at Stitcher's Guild comes out. I always plan for it but not finish so often. But it's really fun to plan and choose fabrics and so on.
This is my first attempt to chose fabrics from my stash. We'll see if it will be these or something else.
I want to sew a collection with clothes to wear at parties or similar events. And the base will be a sheat dress, pencil skirt and a jacket in black cotton gabardine with a little stretch.

The "rules" are:
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
