Tuesday Tips: Season Boards

Ooooo you guys, remember a few weeks ago when I was contemplating a Burda magazine subscription? And whether $25 for 3 issues would be worth it? Totally worth it. My first copy came yesterday and I'm in love. Think about looking through a cool fashion magazine and then having the patterns inside it (okay, yeah, crazy looking patterns, but still). Yay! There were even some cute baby clothes. Now I'm in trouble, seeing as how it's like, $100 for a year of issues. Le sigh.

This week's tip has to do with my topic from yesterday: Fall Fashions! When working on ideas for a new season, I like to sketch out my ideas on a large sheet of paper (I use 14"x17" drawing paper). I group similar garments together, and then at a glance I can see my new mini-wardrobe.

After getting this far, I can tell that I might be over-ambitious! 8 tops, 2 pairs of pants, 2 skirts, 2 dresses, and 3 cardigans. But better too many ideas than too few!

Do you have any of your own techniques for tracking a whole season's worth of designs?

And don't forget to enter the giveaway mentioned in yesterday's post!
