Me Made Capsule Wardrobe

May 1st we are kicking off our Me Made Capsule Wardrobe Year. We are SEW excited! The idea came to us when we were planning Me Made May. How do you fit so many great patterns and fabric into one month? Light bulb, let’s make it a year. Each month we will be focusing on an article of clothing that is versatile and that is a Sew to Speak must have. The patterns will vary in levels of difficulty with plenty of beginner patterns. We will also be hosting textile talks and special classes in order to make your garments your very own, along with virtual sew alongs, special Youtube skill building videos and Instagram chats with staff (ok mostly Karli.) Depending on the garment we will even be offering small group classes in the shop. 


May: Layering Dresses With Pockets. Dress No.1 by 100 Acts of Sewing and Metamorphic Dress by Sew Liberated. 

June:It’s Not Just A Cami. Let’s Hack It Up. Ogden Cami by True Bias. Size 14-30 is available via pdf here
