Alright, now on to the topic of the day. I have selected the patterns I will be using for my spring/summer capsule wardrobe!
Remember, this will be a ten piece mini wardrobe consisting of two pairs of pants, two skirts, four tops, and two dresses. Now, let’s see what I chose!
For the tops I chose four very different ones that I like the look and shape of.
Simplicity 1425: I will be doing this one up in a nice grey, not sure which view I want to do yet, but am leaning towards B. I like the collar.
Simplicity 1872: I’ll do this one up in a soft silky cream. I think it will be just lovely!
January 2014, BurdaStyle UK: this one I will be doing in black and white stripes. A silky sheer black and white I think, though maybe not a sheer, it depends when I fiddle with it.
Burdastyle UK, February 2015: a soft sheer pink. I’ve got the fabric in mind! As I subscribe to the magazine, I just have to wait for this one to arrive. It will show up sometime soon!
I have a nice little variety for the dresses and bottoms as well. First up, the dresses!
McCall’s 6503:View C. In pink. Not sure yet if I’ll do a solid or a print of some kind, I just know it will be pink!
October 2014, BurdaStyle UK: I’m think black yoke striped dress. Maybe a sheer stripe over a black underlayer? Or over white? Haven’t decided for sure yet. Need to layer fabrics and select my preference.
Now for skirts:
February 2014, BurdaStyle UK: In a pretty pink. Either this view or the one with pleating. It depends if my pink is solid or print.
Simplicity 1200: In stripes. I still have to buy this pattern. Hopefully Joann’s has it during their 5 for 5 sale coming up next week.
And last but not least, pants:
February 2014, BurdaStyle UK: These ones in a pink pinstripe.
November 2014, BurdaStyle UK: And these in grey, though I’m not 100% sold on this one. I may switch it out still.
There you have it! My, rather extensive, sewing plan! I’m thinking I’ll start sewing one of these soon, perhaps over the weekend.
Until next week!
