Fall Capsule Wardrobe: A Monthly Challenge DAY THREE

Just joining us? Learn how to pick your patterns here and/ or pick your fabric here!

Welcome to DAY THREE and the final post of our Fall Capsule Wardrobe series. Here is a quick recap of this month’s challenge details. 

 

The Monthly Challenge

This month’s challenge is to plan and create a Fall Capsule Wardrobe. Here are the quick details:

  • Create your own Fall Capsule Wardrobe with three tops, three bottoms, and three layers and/or accessories.
  • Take flat lays of your finished pieces and put them in a Sudoku Square collage. 
  • Post your collage in the designated album on the SLPco Fan Group.
  • The winning collages will be determined based on the number of likes (50%) and staff pick (50%)!
  • Prizes: 
    • 1st Place: $30 in SLPco shop credit AND 3 yards of fabric from Art Gallery
    • 2nd Place: $15 in SLPco shop credit and 1.5 yards of fabric from Art Gallery
  • Contest Ends August 31, 2020.

 

Now, we SEW!

Once you have received your coordinating fabrics and gathered your supplies, it is now time to start sewing! With each piece that I sewed, I got more and more excited to see the end result. The idea of having my daughter’s fall wardrobe complete with just nine pieces was so exciting! 

You can sew your patterns in whatever order you choose. Feel free to modify and customize to make your capsule even more unique to you. Once you have completed each piece, take a flat lay picture. A flat lay is simply a picture of your item laying flat. I chose to take mine on a foam board (you can find in almost any school supplies section and it is CHEAP) or you can use a cute carpet or hardwood floor, whatever you choose! You can add props to help give the flat lay a fall vibe (I added a crochet doily and burlap leaves) or feel free to leave it plain too. 

Once you have taken your flat lay pictures, you will need to put them in a collage arranging them in their Sudoku order.

WOOHOOOOO!! YOU HAVE NOW COMPLETED YOUR SLPco FALL CAPSULE WARDROBE!! How accomplished do you feel?!

Take your collage over to the Simple Life Pattern Fan Group on Facebook and upload it to the Fall Capsule Wardrobe album. If you cannot find it, feel free to ask within the group and one of us will be happy to help!

The Capsule Wardrobe collage winner will be determined by who has the most likes at the end of the contest period (50%) and staff pick (50%). The winner will win $30 in SLPco shop credit, as well as, 3 yard in fabric from Art Gallery!!!!!! Second place will receive $15 in SLPco shop credit and 1.5 yard of Art Gallery Fabric! 

 

Time to Enjoy!

Now you get to sit back and enjoy the beautiful pieces you have created! Maybe you will choose to have a fashion show or just wait until your little is ready to wear them, but either way be sure to snap pictures and share them in the SLPco Facebook group. It is just so rewarding to see the outfits in use!
