My Capsule Wardrobe - post 1

 Here is my latest project!  I am going to document it here and on it's own dedicated page so that I can follow my own progress. 

Post 1

This year I would like to work on (mainly hand sewing/knitting) a capsule wardrobe.

And this is the plan as it stands today!  I have made the Soorik and a tunic length top.  I have started both a t-shirt and a elasticated waist skirt.  

I am hoping to do most by hand - although I will do some of the zig zag stitches on the stretchier fabrics by machine.  I also hope to use my stash fabrics for these projects.  I bought some cotton linen from Minerva for the saguaro set, so I should have stash for everything else.

 So next up is to finish the t-shirt and skirt - I only have hemming on both to go really.  I think I will then start on the saguaro set.  Both of these will have to wait until we return to school as I am a bit busy prior to that.


  1. Very nice plan. You have a good start already.

  2. I like this very much largely because you're so flexible about which forms to use, knitting, stitching, hand or machine, whichever works best. I'm planning to follow this closely!

  3. What a great idea and a brilliant plan!

  4. You inspire in so many ways, Lucy.
