Last weekend, the dress I was working on took a left turn and became a two piece dress. I am still theoretically working on it to wear this Saturday night when I leave Little Prince with daddy to go to the ballet with my mother. He assures me it will be a boys night.
I decided to make it a two piece dress so that I could choose to match the skirt (which love, love, love) with other blouses etc and to maximise its “wardrobe return” (if you can all it that)! ha!
But it also got me to thinking about my sewing projects, sewing in a more selective way… things that I can wear more than once in a blue moon. So From July 2012 to July 13, my projects will assume the following shape. I am calling it a capsule wardrobe, though its probably more my Dream Vintage wardrobe!
Does anyone else out there want to try this July 2012 to July 2013? Plan your pieces- commit to them- and sew with the goal of a wardrobe, not just an outfit? Patterns wouldn’t have to all be chosen at the outset but the “missing links” in your core vintage wardrobe should be picked… I don’t know, just thought it would be fun!
Of course the ideal wardrobe will blend with the things I already own, and based on colour and style choices, I imagine will be essentially “ME”. Here is my current list of projects:
