On week 13 of Wardrobe Architect, Colette offered a free downloadable worksheet from A Sewist’s Notebook by Beth Byrge to help plan your sewing projects. I happen to be working on my self-drafted Bardot dress (blog post coming soon) and used this handy worksheet. Check out the photo below.
What I like about this worksheet is I often forget the exact name of the fabric I am using as well as any special finishing techniques I decide to do mid project but this allowed me to write it down. This worksheet is so helpful because it allows you to have a more organized project and to also plan projects out ahead of time. It is also a great reference when you are shopping for fabrics and supplies. But, honestly if you are anything like me and you look back on a garment you made a year or more ago and can’t remember how you did what you did then you might need something like this!
If this notebook doesn’t float your boat, then check out Colette’s Sewing Planner. At the time of the original blog post, Colette had yet to release their sewing planner book. They now offer a hardcover book with many resources. I will admit I am a bit torn between Beth Byrge’s 110 Creations: A Sewist’s Notebook and Colette’s Sewing Planner. I’m not investing in one just yet but I think either would be a great addition to my sewing resources. 🙂 I’m also a sucker for anything that makes me feel like I am more organized than I really am as well… so I think it’s in my near future. 😉
Do you have any special organization tips whether it be for sewing or just life in general?
