Sewing Your Perfect Capsule Wardrobe

5 Key Pieces to Tailor to Your Style

Arianna Cadwallader & Cathy McKinnon


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 that are the result of years of fast fashion on the high street.

In this practical but inspiring book, the authors present sewing patterns and instructions for the five key pieces 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. Once you've created your items you can then mix and match them 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.
