Closet clean out & Fall sewing plan

The other day I decided to clean out my closet in order to reorganize and make room for new stuff. When you sew as much as I do, and I’m sure many of you have experienced this as well, you can easily run out of room to store the new things you’ve made. So I decided it was time to purge.

I ended up with about three bags of clothing and purses to donate and only a few things to trash. I also found a few things that need fixing in some way (hemming, etc.). 

I thought this would be a good way to get me to start thinking about sewing for the next season. It’s a little difficult since temps are still in the 90’s and summer is in full effect here. But I thought I’d at least try a sewing plan. The clean up did help me to see what I’m lacking and what I would like to have. 

The next step will be to write out what I’d like to make and maybe add some pattern options for those garments. I should also add color options as well. Then, when I really sit down to sew for Fall, I can forget about everything I had planned and buy new patterns like I always do – Ha Ha! 

That’s all for now.
