Planing a capsule wardrobe has been a blast! It has come with plenty of editing and changing of plans too, on the other hand!
I found a better floral fabric and then decided to base the rest of my wardrobe colors around that. I have less colors altogether that I am working with but I think it works better! I made an Everyday Skirt in a denim fabric that was more thick than I originally thought so I took the skirt in some until I liked it. I added a scallop skirt I made a long time ago to the wardrobe and I made a Pendrell blouse that I think turned out fantastic (the fuchsia one above with the ruffles)!
I made a navy striped shirt that did not turn out! It was my first time sewing with knit fabric and even though I took it apart and resewed it a three times (!!!) it was still not right. It was too big and I'm tired of working on it now. I put it in my repair basket and perhaps I will try to fix it later, but maybe I won't! I made plans for another kind of shirt just in case.
Below is my updated plans for my capsule wardrobe! We'll see how it changes as I move forward but I'm liking the plans I've made so far.
After all this you may ask, what is a capsule wardrobe? From the everygirl.com it says, "A mini wardrobe of really versatile pieces that you love to wear". If you are wanting to delve into the process of making your own capsule wardrobe, use the formula above (which can give you 96 different outfits) or look up Wardrobe Sudoku and use that method. The Wardrobe Architect series on the Colette Blog has been so helpful for me and I also loved the book The Curated Closet.
It's been fun to take a look back at all changes I've made trying to make a wardrobe that works for me. I hope this month that I can sew my floral shirt and skirt! Wish me luck!
