Sew your own easy to wear and easy to sew summer-to-fall capsule wardrobe with Christine Jonson Patterns. Eight easy sewing patterns to mix and match with each other and everything in your wardrobe. You’ll love going into your closet each morning and finding great things to wear.
Christine Jonson Patterns have always been designed around the concept of a capsule wardrobe. This summer-to-fall capsule wardrobe (or spring-to-summer) is an easy and FAST way to build wardrobe separates that work together. Every garment in the capsule is made in a comfortable, forgiving stretch knit fabric that will feel comfortable and look great at the same time. You can sew them super fast - no complicated sewing in this bunch!
Two jackets anchor this wardrobe, including the super-stylish knit Moto jacket, and the versatile and upscale reversible Hoodie jacket.
Two pair of pants and a skirt provide the foundation for the wardrobe. The new Wrap Pants are not your typical wrap pants, these feature a fully enclosed and attached waistband for all the fun of wrap pants and none of the hassle. The Perfect Pant Flare is a fabulous complement and dovetails with this season’s continued return to a high-waist flare pant look in RTW.
The Flippy Skirt is just plain fun and can be sewn reversible or single layer – giving you double the options in just one skirt.
The Flyaway Top, Keyhole Tee (without the keyhole), and the V-Neck tee offer summer to fall sewing options with ANY sleeve length (from sleeveless to long sleeve.) Sew a few now sleeveless or with cap sleeves and then sew a few more in long sleeves as the season deepens (or reverse the order for spring-to-fall wear.)
We didn’t forget the dress for dress lovers – the Multi-Tie dress features a flattering fit with a funnelneck and long, scrunchable sleeves. While this dress can be wrapped and tied in a variety of ways, it’s fabulous on it’s own with either the cap sleeve or the long sleeves, and worn with your favorite sneakers for a casual, fun look.
You have all these great pieces – how do you wear them together AND integrate them into your existing wardrobe?
Our wardrobe options show the pieces mixed and matched together (on our model, too) but you can also try these combos:
Flyaway Top and Wrap Pants with the Moto Jacket
Funnelneck Multi-Tie dress in cap sleeves with the Moto Jacket
Flyaway Top with the Flare Leg Pant and Moto Jacket
Flippy Skirt with Keyhole Top and Hoodie Jacket
Moto Jacket over the keyhole tee with jeans
Moto jacket over any other dress in your wardrobe, including woven dresses too
Hoodie jacket over the V-Neck Tee and jeans
Hoodie jacket lengthened over V-neck tunic length top with leggings
Flippy Skirt over leggings worn with boots, a long-sleeve V-neck tee and hoodie
Each of these pieces stands on its own as a workhorse in your wardrobe, but they work so well together and with everything else you’ve sewn this year.
