Do you have clothes you love but don’t wear? Are you tired of making sewn garments or knit/crochet garments that don’t work for you? This online webinar/workshop gives you tools that may help you avoid those disappointments and give you confidence in your choices.

This is a three-meeting workshop. The first two meetings are lecture/information webinars. There is a two week gap for students to prepare their capsule wardrobe and email it to Susan who will prepare a PowerPoint to share. The third meeting will involve looking at the various wardrobe plans and discussing. It is not required that you submit a capsule wardrobe but we encourage you to build one. Watching other students’ capsules will also be a learning experience.

All sessions will be recorded with the ability to watch later.

First, you will be instructed on how to do a self-analysis to help you take a fresh look at your body proportions and facial shape. Then, you will learn how to use line and design to play up your positive features and play down others. The goal is to help you make choices in your garments’ proportions and styles that make you feel good every time you wear them.

Finally, we will work through an exercise to develop your capsule wardrobe. You’ll choose a few items from your existing closet, plan for a few purchases and one (or two) projects to sew, knit, or crochet. The result will be a 9-piece capsule wardrobe that suits your lifestyle, reflects your choices, and makes you shine.
