The Wardrobe Architect: End of Summer Progress

Tuesday, November 3, 2015
This summer I made an attempt to plan my summer wardrobe and future makes, so today I thought I'd update you with how it went.

Things I Sewed:

  • Kimono \ I've had this lightweight fabric from in my stash for over a year, and a finally decided to use it to sew up a kimono jacket using the free kimono pattern pattern from Sew Caroline. It only took me a few hours to sew and I finished it in time to wear it during my trip to Edinburgh.

  • Hair scarves \ I used Tilly and the Buttons Bridget Scarf pattern to make a few scarves from the scraps of my treasured blue poppy Marrimekko fabric that I bought in Finland last year. Unfortunately, I don't have any great pictures of me wearing the scarves just yet, but I DID wear one to the 2015 Handmade Fair this year. 

  • I finally bought a pair of skinny cargo pants, a jumpsuit, overalls, and some culottes to try out.
  • I rarely wore dresses (I wore my maxi dress twice and my knit dresses with leggings on three occasions). 
In Summary:

I didn't really stick to my summer capsule wardrobe because my days were less structured since I don't have to go to work in the summertime, and I travelled a lot.

     Lessons for Fall:

    • Don't commit to making too many items.
    • Focus on separates rather than dresses.
