My wardrobe began to improve when I focused more on what I needed to sew and why. I did this by creating a form I call a Project Page on which I name my project (ex., fitted sheath dress) and enter informaton such as the fabric I want to use, the color, mix and match possbilities in my closet, new sewing skills I might need for it, that sort of thing. I even try to put a date by which I will complete it. Most importantly for me, I have a "Why?" in which I write what event I want to wear this to, or why I need/want it in my closet at all. Maybe I just like the pattern, but whatever the reason, I write it on the form. This form helps me to think a project through before I get too far into it and then wonder, why did I even start this?

This is a great planning idea but also a very helpful record. If you ever want to use the pattern again you'd have some excellent information.

Great idea. I have just started sewing, and have all these ideas. I am starting to get too many projects. This will help me stay grounded and give me some direction. Thanks.
