The Mindful Wardrobe Project is a course and community for sewists, from beginning to advanced. It provides a step-by-step path to define your style, curate your closet, and craft a sewing plan.
So many of us feel overwhelmed by our closets and our to-make lists, confused about our style, or unhappy with our bodies. This online course anchors you in fashion practices that are healthy, not just for you, but for the Earth and its people.
Meg McElwee is the author & designer behind Sew Liberated. For over a decade, her sewing patterns have helped women feel amazing in their clothes.
Meg has a deep commitment to sustainable living and body positivity. She combined these passions with her background in philosophy & teaching to create The Mindful Wardrobe Project, a transformative course in slow fashion.

"The act of sewing should be, at its root, an act of resistance to fast fashion. They say fast, we say slow. They say more, we say less. They say perfection, we say process. They say competition, we say community." - Meg McElwee, creator of the Mindful Wardrobe Project

"The class with Meg totally changed my view of clothing. The exercises she used to walk us through finding our style were eye-opening and left me inspired to continue the journey. Wait til you see me next time — my personal style will be rock-star!"
"Meg’s course really helped me fill in the blanks in creating a true capsule wardrobe that works for me. I started sewing this year, which brings with it learning what patterns and design lines look good on my specific body. The tips I learned in Meg’s course will help me as I further refine my wardrobe."
Both beginning and experienced sewists will feel at home in the course. Work through the material with the group, or go at your own pace. It's slow fashion, after all, so you have lifetime access to the course materials.
