Whip It Up Wednesday!!: Spring Capsule Sewalong

I've been wanting to go the capsule route for the last 6 months but with a new baby and nursing I just haven't made that leap....

until NOW!!!

If you haven't noticed I really LOVE LOVE to sew... and Becca over at Free Notion came up with this crazy awesome idea of sewing your spring capsule in a week!  Well maybe not your entire capsule but 9 or fewer pieces...separates you can mix and match.  

Want to know more?? Check it out here

So guess who said... "I'm in!!"

That's right this girl!!

I have jumped in feet first!  I have already planned my capsule and done my fabric selection.  Plus I've started cutting and sewing my pieces as well... why?  Well one because I can't cut then sew days later..I do best if I cut and sew a garment at the same basic time... and secondly I get to it when I can which has been at about 4:30 or 5 in the morning this week.  

Would you like to see my plan??

Everything in blue I already have on hand. The grey bow ballet flats I found at Walmart on sale, the cardigan is from Gap, a pair of black leggings that are super comfy, grey knit "dress" pants I've had for years, a purple nursing top from Target, and my favorite Jack Rogers.  Oh, those cute necklaces are KEEP!!!  Want one?  You can purchase it here. 

Everything in pink is an item I need to make or already have made.  I just realized there has been an edit.  I switched the Sorbetto from Colette for the Seamwork Akita, a free 30 minute skirt pattern from Make It Perfect , The Only Tee (tank version/tunic length), La Bella Donna, and the Sabrina Slims.  All of these items fall into the quick sew category.  I can't wait to take some shots of the outfits all together...NEXT WEEK!


So that's great I have all these patterns but what about fabric...well I have a massive stash and was able to pull from it.  But you can many times pick up the needed fabric locally at a Hobby Lobby, Hancock's or even Wal-Mart.



All of my fabrics for this challenge came from Girl Charlee & Hawthrone Threads.  Both have great customer service and fast shipping.  


So who's with me let me know in the comments!  Don't sew...no worries tell me one piece of clothes you wish you could get to fit better... jeans, tops, skirts??    

XOXO,

Caci
