About This Class


A wardrobe is made up of garments that fit your body type in a range of colors that complement your personality to express your style.  In planning a wardrobe, you must carefully consider the pieces you make or buy and how each piece contributes to the whole of your wardrobe.  Building a wardrobe takes skill and organization.  Evaluating your lifestyle, your body type, color palette, fit, and fabrics will lead you to the answers you need to curate a collection of garments that are your wardrobe.  Join Joy Macdonell to learn how to plan to make and buy garments for your dream wardrobe.  In this class, we will evaluate your current closet, figure out your body type, discuss figure & fit, learn the language of color, develop a wardrobe palette, and plan for how to shop and create figure flattering garments for your wardrobe.
