MeMade Spring Capsule Wardrobe 

My body has gone through a lot of changes in the past three years. First, I lost about 15 pounds, then I got pregnant, and now I am on the downward slope of postpartum. When I look in the mirror, I don’t see the same person anymore! 

Because of this, NONE of my clothes fit. Well, maybe one or two items- but the majority of the items are either no longer flattering, too big, or are worn through from overwearing. 

I originally took up sewing to make clothing for my children! Once I was brave enough to make my first set of mommy and me leggings, it was over. 

What is the logical next step? MAKE ALL THE CLOTHES.

Buuuuuuut, my bank account might have a problem with this. Now granted, making my clothing is SO much cheaper, but you have to be careful not to go overboard. I adopted the same philosophy I do when shopping sales or thrift stores- just because it’s cheap doesn’t mean you need it! 

SO, long story short, I decided to revisit the capsule wardrobe idea! I did this 3 years ago, but I am basically starting from scratch. Instead of purchasing all new items, it’s time to warm up that sewing machine!

This is what I came up with:

All of these inspiration pics were snagged from Pinterest. I have noticed I tend to stick to the same color scheme season after season with slight tonal variations. What can I say? I know what colors I look good in! But hey, that will make coordinating future seasons that much easier. 

I already have a couple of items made that are not on the picture list, but they do fall into the color scheme. I also did not include shoes or accessories. This is basically just a plan for what I am going to make! 

This is a version of the 4×4 style capsule wardrobe. The 4×4 and sudoku style capsule wardrobes are all the rage right now, but as someone who tends to add too many unnecessary rules to things, I figured I needed to give myself a break… live on the edge a little! 

Have you tried a capsule wardrobe before?   What style do you tend to follow? Unfancy, 4×4, sudoku, or something all your own? 

Happy Planning!
