Fall 2017 Capsule Collection

Today I'm introducing my Fall 2017 Capsule Collection! I talked about it on Instagram since last month, and I finally got around to posting it on the blog. This time of the year always seems to get super busy, and personally for me, time seems to slip away faster during these last months of the year. 

Anyway, you may have noticed a new header on the blog (yay!), and even though it's not the final one, my blog is slowly starting to come together. I posted about my blog "refash" here. I'm working hard everyday that I can to get my blog "refash" done by the end of the year. :)

Now...on to the capsule collection!



My first item of my Fall Capsule Collection is a closet staple piece. I chose a This pattern is the Sweetheart Dress from Patterns for Pirates. I love it, because I love circle dresses and skirts. To make it, I used a grey jersey that I had in my fabric stash from my days at FIDM. I found a similar fabric here from Girl Charlee. This dress is now a closet favorite, because it pairs well with anything.



Unicorns! While unicorns might be trending now, I've always liked them. So much that, my 15th birthday was unicorn themed, hehe. When I saw this lovely french terry from So Sew English Fabrics, I quickly snatched it up. I'm glad I did, because this color sold out!
I made a peplum top using the Sweetheart Dress pattern from Patterns for Pirates. Since I didn't have enough fabric for a full circle for the peplum, I just gathered up a rectangle.


For my skirt, I used the Pirate Pencil Skirt from Patterns for Pirates. It is a free pattern, if you're a member of their Facebook group! I highly recommend joining. It is one of my favorite sewing groups! I altered the pattern a little bit by removing a bit of space from the hips (I'm not curvy AT ALL lol), and I made it a little straighter from the hip down, because: 1. I didn't want it to be skin tight and 2. because of course, I'm not curvy LOL. The fabric is Grey Distressed from Mily Mae Fabrics. There are more colors available, and they're all so lovely! I'm like *swoon* and all the heart eyes!



I had some more Grey Distressed fabric, so I made some leggings. I love some good distressed denim, so it was obvious that I should make some distressed leggings. This is the Peg Legs pattern from Patterns for Pirates. (It is a free pattern!) They are so comfortable, and the holes aren't see through (a plus for modesty).


A fall capsule would not be complete without... a cozy cardigan! I got this Brushed Sweater Knit from Mily Mae Fabrics. It's so soft and comfortable. The pattern is the Cocoon Cardigan from Patterns for Pirates. There are various styles you can make with this pattern. I did tunic length, short bands, and patch pockets. I love how it goes great with anything in my closet, it's warm, and obviously very cozy.



To complete my fall capsule, I made another pair of leggings, since the Peg Legs pattern is a super quick and easy sew. I used my lovely unicorn french terry to make them. 

Oh, and if you're wondering (or not, hehe, but I'll tell you anyways) I didn't make my striped "tunic." I call it a "tunic," but it's actually a short dress that I like to knot on the side, lol. 

Well that concludes my Fall 2017 Capsule Collection. It was super fun making it. I think I'll come up with different capsule collections from now on. :)
