Retro Inspired Capsule Wardrobe

My goal recently was to create a vintage inspired (40’s/50’s) capsule wardrobe. (Clothes that mix and match with each other.)

I’ve already posted about the first set I made for this, Vogue 8789, so here’s the rest of my capsule! I have to say that in particular, I love the Hollyburn pink skirt. It was easy to make and super comfortable, though I’m pretty happy with all of these items.¬†I can tell that I’ll be wearing them a lot and reusing some of these patterns in other fabrics and colors! It feels great to sew towards having a more workable wardrobe. These items fit me better and are the colors and styles I want more than most stuff I would find in the store.

    Wow! What a cute capsule collection! My favorite piece is the cherry check blouse- those sleeves are on point.

    AMAZING! Such a great idea, and they do look really chic together.

    Love this wardrobe! You’ve inspired me to tackle a blouse as my next project, the smooth sailing blouse seems universally beloved so I’m going to give it a try! Everything you made looks great and I love the way the colours compliment. Well done you!

    Wow so cute! I’m just starting my own handmade capsule wardrobe. Did you do many adjustments to smooth sailing blouse? I’ve got that and the trousers on my list and struggling with the trousers…..

      Hi Jodie! Sorry I don’t really remember what modifications I made, but I found the blouse pretty easy to do! Good luck!
