CAPSULE WARDROBE: SUMMER

CAPSULE WARDROBE: SUMMER
Kate Underdown

This is the next instalment in our blog series where we choose seven fantastic items for summer. All the patterns can be worn together and are interchangeable. I’ve created a video where I talk through them all and how they can be worn together. Although I am currently wearing a jumper I hear that the sun is on the way!

Let’s meet the patterns:

These are the seven sewing patterns that we have chosen.

  • First up we have the Esti co-ord set from Tilly and the Buttons – this is such a versatile pattern that has so many variations that it is making the base of our capsule wardrobe. It’s also perfect if you are in the beginner camp!
  • Noomi Denim Jacket from Bara Studio – the British summer calls for a jacket. Am I right?! Well the Noomi jacket is one to check out, a mix of a denim jacket and a workwear jacket it’s a really useful item that can work with lots of things, making it a perfect pattern for a capsule.
  • Bedrock Tee from Sew Liberated – my favourite t-shirt pattern, fitted around the bust and slightly flared from the waist. There are three variations including a tank, long-sleeved top and a standard tee.
  • Kaya Dress from Fibre Mood – a super simple sew that can be made midi length or short. It works really well as a layering piece or can be worn on it’s own. This would also work well trans-seasonally so it could take you through to autumn.
  • Alea Shirt and Dress from Marsha Style – this is a lovely pattern, make it as a shirt or a shirt dress it’s a wardrobe staple and will never go out of style.
  • Rachel Skirt  from I AM Patterns – is another fantastic simple sew. It comes in three length options and has a slit up the side.
  • Costermonger Tote from Merchant & Mills – Everyone needs a bag to hide all their snack and I love that this pattern can be used as a tote as well as a rucksach. If you don’t want to source all the hardware there is a kit for this too – hurrah!

How to wear them together:

So we’ve picked the pattern now it’s time to think about how to wear them together. There were so many variations for these patterns but here are a few of my favourite. Enjoy!
