Planning, sewing, packing and styling a spring break capsule wardrobe
Heading off to a sunny clime for Spring Break? There’s nothing more enjoyable for a sewist than planning and sewing something new to take on your trip! Science tells us it’s the planning and anticipation that makes us happy, so let’s get really happy and plan AND sew a spring break capsule wardrobe.
We selected 11 pieces that we knew we needed for our trip:
Each of these pieces can be worn mixed and matched with the other and it all fits in a small carryon suitcase. Add a pair of luxe sneakers, a pair of flip flops and a pair of dressy sandals and you're all set!
