A Few Thoughts on Wardrobe Planning

March 22, 2017   /   byJen  / Categories :  Feeds

One quick thing I want to touch on after our last post about my Martine Pullover is that I don’t think there is one correct way to plan a wardrobe!

In my last post when I said that I’m not into doing wardrobe surveys and drawing each garment out, that doesn’t mean I don’t plan. Or that the way I do plan is the “right way” to plan. Or that everyone even needs to plan! If you’re into going where the wind blows you sewing wise, then great! If that’s what works, that’s what works. There are so many ways to go about your sewing projects – from a simple list in your head, in Evernote (which is what I’m currently doing) to a full on wardrobe planning book such as The Curated Closet and other similar books.

Sometimes the garment making world seems like everyone is planning one way or making in one type of style, and if that’s not the way you work or what you like it can feel slightly alienating. At least that’s how I felt when I realized that a strict capsule wardrobe wasn’t working for me and also how I felt a many years ago when it seemed like I was the only one not sewing form fitting garments. I got over that when I realized that this is what works for me and what makes me happy in my making and my wardrobe though.

Are you a basic list maker? A full on capsule planner? Do you just make as the inspiration strikes? Or somewhere in between?
