My name is Ashlea, I'm a in my heart, but live in the midwestern
I found this forum b/c I was searching for help in wardrobe planning. I've eliminated all of the clothing from my wardrobe that I don't like, doesn't fit, doesn't make me feel fabulous (or even presentable). Now I have almost no clothes, whoops.
Also, in regard to wardrobe I am hoping to sew my 4.5 year old dd's wardrobe for this spring/summer. Usually I shop seasonal clearance sales and have some clothes put away for the next year, but I didn't have much luck last year. Lot's of the clearance stuff was way too sleezy for 5 year olds (imo), my 5 year old doesn't need to dress like a pop star.
So, I'm looking for advice, wardrobe requirements and such. I'd really like to go minimalist for all of us, less laundry, more frequently, kwim?
Self taught sewist, wishing I could take classes, planning my 5 year old dd's spring/summer wardrobe.

What a great site this is! You'll fit right in. I'm sure you've looked around and have seen the diversity here.
I admire your throwing out so much. That's what I need to do.
Hope to see you often.

Hi Ashlea and welcome to the gang. Have you looked at Mary's SWAP thread - (sew with a plan) - it may give you a jumping off point.
love and kisses, Jan
