Wardrobe Architect 2016

Writing a blog has something in common with sewing: Both are things I like but unfortunately, I don’t spend as much time on it as I would like to. Maybe I can change this with participating in the Wardrobe Architect Series 2016. So what is the Wardrobe Architect Series? It’s a project started by Colette Patterns in 2014 with the objective to design and build “a thoughtful attire”. The project’s single steps guide sewists through a process of figuring out their needs regarding clothing (e. g., does your current wardrobe actually fit your life?), planning and finally sewing garments they really are going to wear, suitable to match each other and / or other clothes in their wardrobe.

My reasons to join the WA Project 2016 are the following:

1. In 2013, I moved to a region where the summer usually is longer and hotter than in my home country and I noted that I really need more clothes suitable for this weather. I sewed a few summer garments last year but I think I still need some more.

2. I have lots of nice fabric in my stash as well as sewing patterns I haven’t used yet… And  I really want to shrink my stash this year.

I hope that participating in the WA project will help me to sort and prioritise my sewing a little so that I’ll have a proper wardrobe for summer.

As far as I understand it, the current edition of Wardrobe Architect is not hosted by Colette Patterns, but by Christine Haynes who scheduled it into 13 steps.

Every second Tuesday, there’s a topic to be treated in your blog posts. I’m already a little late, but I hope I’ll get to write my post on the first topic until the end of this week.
