Mini Wardrobe Achieved!

As you know, I finished my Mini Wardrobe yesterday.  Woohoo!

I deviated a bit from my original plan, but I’m very pleased with the outcome.  As a review, here are the pieces I made:

1.  McCall’s skirt
2.  Burda Style skirt
3.  Colette Patterns dress
4.  Vogue blouse
5.  McCall’s cardigan

You’ve seen all of these pieces individually already, but here they are together

After a bit of time and distance, I’ve come to the conclusion that I am really happy with nearly all of these pieces.  It may be a bit of a struggle for me to get 5 garments done in a month, but I sure do enjoy the Mini Wardrobe contest!

And now that I’ve finished this, I’m trying to decide:  what’s next?  I just took my sewing machine and serger in for yearly maintenance yesterday, and was told it would be up to 2 weeks, so I have a bit of planning time on my hands.

  1. I really love the color palette you used–what a great capsule collection! Enjoy planning your next projects; you’re a more dedicated sewist than I am, because I’d probably burst into flames at the thought of sewing something else so soon after finishing 5 items in one month, LOL!

    1. Thanks, BeaJay! Got the fabric from FabricMart…probably my biggest textile acquisition weakness. I see that they ship Down Under now, but I can only imagine how much that could cost!

  2. Nicely done! I think the blouse with the striped skirt is my favorite. Good job pushing through and getting it all finished! I wanted to do the contest this year but I just couldn’t muster the motivation. I’m kind of in a sew-whatever-strikes-my-fancy phase… so I very much admire your dedication!

  3. I love it! It looks so well thought out in terms of colour, shapes and silhouettes. That striped shirt is so cool and even though I know you had issues with the cardi, I think the pattern has potential. Well done!
