About the Sewing Project Planning Guide and Workbook for Costumers PDF Edition

The Sewing Project Planning Guide is designed to help you get organized, keep track of your projects, and document your work. Documentation is helpful for getting a handle on what you did in each costume you made. You may want to go back and repair or upgrade an older costume. What fabric did you use and where did you get it? What paint color did you use on a prop? How did you get the finished look and what techniques did you use? The more costumes you build – the great chance you have of forgetting those little details. Documentation helps you to get repeatable results.
