Class - Shop Your Closet
Topic: Field Trip
I have been seeing quite a few 'capsule wardrobe' posts on pinterest lately. Last spring I actually used this concept to put together a travel wardrobe for three weeks in the UK and was delighted with how well it worked.
Her concept is to start with what you aready own - weeding out whatever does not make you very happy wearing it. Then, when you have left only the pieces you like, decide which go together for mix and match outfits.
Start with 2 bottoms, 2 tops and a layering piece that all go together. Add accessories. Lay them out on a white sheet and take a photo.
To expand, add another bottom or top that goes with some of the first pieces. Take more photos.
You will end up with a catalog of how all your clothing can be put together into outfits.
She suggests doing the same with your fabric stash - starting with a print, adding fabrics that go with it and expanding choices until you have enough for a quilt. She puts these togethr in project bags (along with a pattern if she has one selected).
