Cigarette pants

Good morning! I’ve been busy working on projects and custom orders. Cigarette pants are my new project. Here are a couple of pictures and pattern inspirations!

McCall’s 9517 and Advance 8974

These pants are great for casual everyday or dress them up. The pants have a back zipper with darts and facing. Easy pattern for beginners or the experienced seamstress! The navy cigarette pants are made with a lighter weight cotton fabric. I used a heavier cotton fabric for the grey ones. Both are very comfortable and easy to throw on for a quick trip to the store or for a day playing with your kids “in my case it’s grandkids.”

Planning my capsule wardrobe – step one inventory

Planning my capsule wardrobe – Step one Inventory

So I started my inventory if my closet. I talked to my Mom and told her what I was doing…. Inventory of my closet….. her response was black, black, black…  Well she was right! 2 pair of black pants, two pair of black capri’s.. I did have one pair of tan claim diggers and one pair of light brown pants. Only need to alter one pair of the capri’s so they fit. So apparently my capsule wardrobe is going to start with those. I have one cute cardigan in a creme color and several little tops that have a vintage feel to them. I also have three of my circle skirts that I will be adding to this!

My goal now is to figure out the colors I want to bring to this dull start. So next is going to be the inventory of the fabrics I have in my stash. Not a bad start!

Here are pictures of my circle skirts.

Making a capsule wardrobe

Making a capsule wardrobe? Where to begin? What to include? So many questions! So many ideas!

I think all of us attempt to put together a capsule wardrobe, not really calling it that. But, I think actually sitting down and putting some thought into this capsule wardrobe a great idea. So this little blog is going to be my attempt at creating my little capsule wardrobe!

I’ve started pulling patterns from my store for my new project! Here are a few!

I’ve joined some groups on Facebook for sewing and there’s a new capsule wardrobe group that fabulous. I’ll be sharing some of the things I’ve learned. Hopefully, I’ll have a new capsule wardrobe to share when I get to the end of this exploration!

Thanks for stopping by!
