Do you have clothes you love but don’t wear? Are you tired of making sweaters or garments that don’t work for you? This workshop gives you tools that may help you avoid those disappointments and give you confidence in your choices.

First, Susan walks you through a self-analysis to help you take a fresh look at your body proportions and facial shape. Then, she will show you how to use line and design to play up some features and play down others. The goal is to help you make choices in your garments’ proportions and styles that make you feel good every time you wear them.

Finally, we will work through an exercise to develop your capsule wardrobe. You’ll choose a few items from your existing closet, plan for a few purchases and one (or two) projects to sew, knit, or crochet. The result is a 9-piece capsule wardrobe that suits your lifestyle, reflects your choices, and makes you shine.

Capsule Wardrobe-Fabulous class

Susan Lazaer is a detailed oriented impeccably prepared teacher who shared a wealth of information in 3 sessions on how to build a capsule wardrobe. I learned a tremendous amount in this class- and not just from the teacher. She structured the class so that members of the class at our last session all shared their visions of a capsule wardrobe for themselves and helped put "finishing touches" on other people's wardrobes. I had so much fun- great great experience.

Good Class - High level overview at the start of class would have been helpful

The handout and the powerpoint deck did not seem to match and I found it hard to follow. I know our ultimate goal is to work towards our own capsule wardrobe, but I had difficulty tracking how what we were covering would get me to this goal. A high level overview at the beginning would have been helpful

Fun Deep Dive Into Wardrobe

Susan Lazear gave us a wide variety of information to do a deep dive into our wardrobes to create a capsule, or several capsules. It was a fun process, and a worthwhile project.
