The idea is to pick stash fabrics and easy to sew patterns so that you can put together your capsule in a week. Really its two, but the first week has just been about pulling fabrics and planning. She came up with various Sudoku style capsules as a jumping off point.
I've been in a sewing funk. I've been sewing but not feeling all inspired so I figured why not? I also decided to give up fabric shopping for Lent- its hard! Two reasons I decided to jump on board. Oh and lastly my mother will be taking over my sewing room in a week for a short enough visit that I'm not going to set up elsewhere but long enough that I'll get withdrawals! (9 days)
I started by pulling fabrics. I decided that I would use the Jalie jeans that I cut out a while ago but haven't made as one of my bottoms and sort of based the rest of the fabrics on what went well with those.
I then tried to look for patterns I'd already made to make things easier. Tried is the key word as I ended up with 3 new to me patterns. Oh well. Since I was using a few new patterns I did throw in RTW pants to make my life a little easier. The wool sweater also is a nod to the fact that its still in the 40s around here. Ugh... The process was fun and I'm inspired. I can't wait to start sewing all these up!!
