HI DARLINGS! So if you did not make it to the conferee this year you missed out on Joy Macdonell’s amazing class “The Essential Guide to a Perfect Wardrobe: Finding Your Style” and The Essential Guide to a Perfect Wardrobe: Picking a Palette These are the best courses I have taken in a long time and as a seasoned seamstress I still often make things just because new patterns release and I want to sew them up instead of really taking time figure out what my everyday wardrobe is lacking. I often say I don’t have anything to wear because I am making things for the blog but not always just for myself.
“The Essential Guide to a Perfect Wardrobe: Finding Your Style” Learn to strategically translate your style to your closet and plan for your new wardrobe projects. Building a wardrobe takes skill and organization. Evaluating your lifestyle, your favorite garment pieces, colors, and fabrics will lead you to the answers you need to curate a collection of your favorite garments. In this class, we will clean out our closets and find our hang-ups. We will learn to think about what garments we love to buy and need to make over and over again. By the end of the class you will have a plan for how to shop for new garments, fabrics, materials, and sewing & knitting patterns and know what garment you want to make or buy next.
