I had hoped to post this on Monday but I have been waiting for some pieces to come in and I was hoping to have been able to do some more sewing. So you get a little mish mash of what I want Spring to be once I’ve finished sewing. This will be a two month capsule since Summer starts during or sometimes before June in Oklahoma. Then I’ll start my three month capsules if I decide this is working for me.
I could have easily made my spring capsule out of things I already own but I wanted to try out a few different pieces. I spent $170 on 6 items; fabric to make a light pink midi skirt, khaki capris, a classic white button up, pink vegan leather jacket, and two new pairs of dexflex shoes (the only shoes I wear these days). Everything I bought was on sale! I watched that jacket online for weeks to see how good of a price I could get, and I probably could have ended up with a better deal but there is only a short window of jacket weather time in Oklahoma and I wanted to make sure I didn’t miss it! Let it be known I have never liked khaki pants or button up shirts but these seem to fit well (after some alterations) and will be good spring staples to work with so we’ll see if I actually end up wearing them.
Yes, I plan on making a few of my pieces and two of the tops are things I made in March. My goal each season is to make a few pieces so maybe one day I’ll be closer to having a fully handmade wardrobe. One can dream right? This month I want to make light pink midi skirt similar this this one, the emery dress in this adorable playful lawn from Cotton + Steel, and the ever popular Moneta in some black and white striped jersey I got on the bargain table at Hancock's. Yes I really like stripes!
Since It has been a few days into April here are the outfits I’ve worn so far. I love spring!
