Paige’s Mini Capsule Reveal

May 25, 2017   /   byPaige  / Categories :  Feeds

I’m terrible at following through on long-term sewing challenges, so I’m pretty excited to say that I actually completed my mini capsule! The loose theme I planned my mini capsule around is what I want to wear this summer, exciting I know. But I’ve got a few lake trips planned, tons of porch and deck hangouts and lots of walks to our community pool. Casual, comfortable, and versatile are all things I strived for.

I sewed up 7 pieces. 3 tops (Patterns for Pirates Favorite Tee, Patterns for Pirates Free Spirit Tank, Made for Mermaids Mama Ava), 1 layering piece (Patterns for Pirates Cocoon Cardigan), and 3 bottoms (Made for Mermaids Mama Chloe, Patterns for Pirates Peg Legs, Patterns for Pirates Peg Legs Bell Bottom Hack). All knits, all easy to wear and perfect for my summer plans. I threw together the simplest combinations below. I also have all the options from hacking my two coordinating pieces. 

I totally get that it might be too much tie dye for some, but I really love the print! I stuck pretty neutral color-wise with my other pieces, so I could mix and match my bold tie dye fabric. I picked fabrics I knew would pack down well and would stay mostly wrinkle free. These all easily fit inside of one of my compression packing cubes. Which leaves me tons of room for accessories, bathing suits, and a few retail bought denim pieces. I also grabbed some quick photos of some of my favorite outfits. I had plans to have a beautiful outdoor photo shoot- but alas, this midwestern spring has been more stormy than any I can remember.

Rainbow Overalls Dress

So I LOVE overalls, i adore them on the kids and I have a pair myself. I had this plans of drafting my own pattern of *proper* overalls because all the patterns I had seen weren’t really the style I wanted. I did a *fancy* version for my Bright & Bold lil luxe mini collection but I didn’t have any *traditional* ones.

and then, i don’t even know how, i found the I Dig Dungarees as soon as they were released. I didn’t even know the designer, but after buying them (right away) I really, really, recommend Made by Jack’s Mum (i haven’t tried any other patterns from MBJM but if you’re sewing for a boy I would really check out the others!). The attention to detail in both the pattern and the instructions is something I super appreciate when I’m trying to sew things that are more complicated than a pair of shorts or a shirt.
