Gotta have a plan...

So I have been thinking about the "Sew Your Own Wardrobe" challenge trying to figure out how I am going to tackle this.  At first, I was thinking....just sew outfits.  But I could not quite rap my mind around that one. 

Then I started to think back (realy think way back) on how we had to do our projects in school.  So I decided to do "colllections" or mini-wardrobes. That way I can maximize on my wardrobe potential and have pieces that can coordniate with each other within the collection as well as inter-mix with other collections.  This concept is also called "Sewing With A Plan" (SWAP).

So here's my SWAP...I'm thinking the base for each mini- wardrobe collection will consist of 5-6 peices:


3 - tops
2 - bottoms (any mix of skirt, pants or shorts)


2 - tops
1 - bottom (skirt, pants or shorts)
1 - dress

And then add in a light weight jacket or cardigan for the spring/summer or a coat for the fall/winter.  Plus what ever other outfit, dress, shirt, pants or what every I get inspired to sew through out the year.


  1. plans are good, I'm going to try to go month by month as to what I want to make, hopefully that will keep me from thinking about shopping so much lol!happy sewing & good luck with your plans!

    1. Oh trust me this will still go month by month. I just feel a little better kinda having an idea about how I want to attack this.
      Happy Sewing and Good Luck to you too!

  2. Sounds like a great plan of attack for the challenge - can't wait to see it all come together for you ... J

    1. Thank you Judith! Stay tuned...I have a couple of things in progress that I will hopefully have finished up this weekend. :-)
