So one of my favorite sewing bloggers, Rochelle of Lucky Lucille is hosting a new sew-along. This particular sew-along is Vintage Inspired Four Piece Mini Capsule Wardrobe or VIFPMCW for short. Yeah, it’s a mouthful either way.

Anyways, I’m super excited about this. First off the sew-along has no set dates, just so as you go, kind of like the Vintage Pattern Pledge sew-along. This is nice since many times I don’t really get a chance to participate in sew-alongs, or miss the deadline altogether.
Second I’ve been meaning to create my own capsule wardrobe for sometime. If you are unfamiliar with the term capsule wardrobe, essentially it means a collection of a few must-have items of clothing that will not go out of fashion, such as a skirt, pair of pants, coat and can be expanded upon with seasonal pieces.
The only question now is what type of VIFPMCW do I sew? Should I focus on year-round essentials or should I go with a seasonal wardrobe?
As it turns out I have several patterns in my stash that might work.
Deciding which pattern to sew always seems to be the hardest part of any challenge. Once I have a definite plan for this project I’ll get started.
