Capsule Wardrobe Book


A capsule wardrobe is timeless, stylish, and effortlessly chic. Composed of go-to pieces that can be dressed up or down, it is the perfect antidote to the overstuffed drawers and ill-fitting cheap outfits from the world of “fast fashion”. In this practical but inspiring book, seamstress Arianna Cadwallader and designer Cathy McKinnon present sewing patterns and instructions for the five key pieces of clothing that will form the basis of your own capsule wardrobe: a great shift dress, well-fitting trousers, a simple yet stylish skirt, a light blouse, a jersey vest. Their focus is on quality and fit. All the patterns can be adapted to fit and suit you perfectly, whether you prefer long, short or cap sleeves, high or low waistbands, and slim, straight, or wide-legged trousers. You can then mix and match your garments to create a variety of looks and styles. Aimed at advanced beginners, the book guides you through how to measure yourself and all the techniques you will need to construct these timeless pieces. This is the essential guide to creating your perfect wardrobe.
