Product details

The ITF Slow Sewing Planner will help offer you clarity about what’s missing in your wardrobe, as well as sustainable tips to organise what you already have. By taking time to reflect on our process and plan for the months ahead, we can also take time to feel proud of the lessons we are learning and the amazing things we can do with our hands.

The Slow Sewing Planner is something you can use at the beginning of the year, the beginning of a season, or whenever you need inspiration about what to make next. By sewing clothing intentionally, over time you will be able to create a wardrobe that reflects who you are and will allow you to feel at ease in your me-made wardrobe.

The Slow Sewing Planner is a digital product so you can use the PDF over and over. Print the whole booklet or just the exercises you would like to work on. It's up to you!

      Very useful

      I found it relaxing to plan and reflect on my wardrobe. I will continue to learn sewing ans choose my projects more intentionally. Thank you!

      So wonderful to hear this, Mylène! Glad we could help you be more intentional with your sewing projects.

      Slow Sewing Planner is the best!

      I purchased this planner about a month ago and have found it very motivating. I have organized my fabrics and projects, and made note of my past makes so along with my long term plans and goals, I can eliminate duplicating pieces that I might not need because I can see at a glance what I’ve made and what I plan to in future. ( I tend to sew on impulse, rather than need! I believe the planner will prevent that! )
      Creating a ‘mood board’ of sorts keeps me from going off course, too. There are endless ways to use the planner and I’m really just getting started.

      Thank you so much, Vivian! So glad to hear it's been a helpful resource for you.
