You sew because you want to express yourself —
— With all the unique quirks, preferences, and qualities that make you who you are.
But too often, we sewists get tripped up. Maybe you get pulled into the latest trends, or you keep accumulating fabric, or you just keep making things that you'll never wear.
That means you end up spending way too much time and money while not expressing who you really are. Your wardrobe feels fractured. There's a disconnect between your personal style and the things you’re making, and you’re not quite sure how to bridge it.
We’ve all been there. And we have just the thing to help.
What is Design Your Wardrobe?
Design Your Wardrobe will help you get unstuck and back on the path of making clothes that fit who you are.
With videos, a workbook, creative exercises, a planner, and a private community to support you, you'll create your own personalized queue of projects for the next 3–6 months.
By the end of this program, you’ll be able to:
Create a moodboard, so you can visualize exactly what you're going for.
Build a palette, so you have the exact fabrics and colors that work together.
Define the looks you want to create, so you're not just sewing one-off projects.
Build a personal queue of sewing projects, so you have an idea of what you want to make in the next season.
What You’ll Get
In each module, you’ll focus on a different part of the design process, from setting goals to planning your final sewing queue. You’ll watch videos that demystify what it means to think like a designer.
Fun Worksheets & Activities
In each lesson, you’ll do a quick activity. These exercises will help you explore your style, play with inspiration and fabric, and organize your ideas so you can prioritize your sewing.
The Seamwork Community is a place to connect, ask questions, share your ideas, and cheer each other on. Chat with other sewists in a positive, supportive space, and get inspired by the wardrobe goals of creative makers like you.
Along with video lessons, you’ll receive a downloadable workbook of the lessons, walking you through the entire process. Re-read the lessons whenever you like, and use it to follow along during the live program.

What Participants are Saying
Over 7,000 sewists have gone through the Design Your Wardrobe program. Here's what they have to say.
I was drawn to the Design Your Wardrobe course because I wanted to be strategic about my making. I developed project plans based on garments I needed, and this process has given me a tool for assessing future pattern excitement.
II have never been so organized, and excited to start sewing a capsule wardrobe. It is wonderful to have all the classes and resources to help with my sewing at my fingertips. Keep up the great work!
I love Design Your Wardrobe! It’s such a fun and useful process every time. And it works! Nearly all of my most loved and worn me-mades are the result of Design Your Wardrobe plans that I’ve made over the years.
