How did you feel getting dressed this morning?  


  • Did you feel utterly inspired by the collection of handmade garments in your closet – all created by you, for you?
  • Did the carefully chosen dresses, skirts, tops, and pants hanging in front of you fill you with joy and pride?
  • Was it easy to pick out a few coordinating pieces, creating beautiful looks that expressed who you are? 


If not, you’re not alone. Plenty of creative sewists end up with a tangled mishmash of garments in a variety of styles, and many don’t fit their bodies, life, or personality.  

The truth is, it’s our creative nature that gets in the way. 

Unharnessed, we get swept away by ideas and novelty. Plus, we just love to sew. We end up making a lot, but not always what we really want to wear.  

What if you could press pause once in a while, and do a few simple design exercises that would help you choose the right ideas for you

The Wardrobe Quick-Start Series

Want some new ideas to focus your creative process? The Wardrobe Quick Start Series delivers tips for using every part of your planner to help get rid of inspiration overwhelm, define a style, create a fabric palette, build looks, and plan out projects.

How You’ll Design:

The Wardrobe Quick-Start Series will give you tips for building your own personal design process.

Organize your ideas.

Create a concept based on your own goals and needs, which will focus the rest of your plan. You’ll be able to filter ideas quickly and systematically.

Design looks you’ll actually want to wear.

Instead of thinking only about individual sewing projects, combine ideas to create complete looks, just like a designer would.

Use fabrics you love to create a palette.

Design with fabrics you already have, or choose new ones that inspire you. Most important, create a workable palette out of them to simplify your wardrobe. 

Plan your projects and get them done.

Get all the details down, so you’re excited about what you’ll make. And using this process, you’ll still have room for new inspiration that comes up.
