Capsule Wardrobe Winter 2019-2020 ... Sewionista.com ... Sewing ... Slow Fashion ... DIY

Here comes the summary of my oufits of the first week of my winter capsule wardrobe. Unfortunately with a bit of a delay as my back has started acting up at the end of the week again. That is also the reason why I had to skip this week as I spent it mostly on the couch in comfy clothes. The first week has been quite busy as I only worked on Monday and then spent the rest of the week with my family in Hassia. Altogether, I’m really satisfied with my outfits and even though it was not planned, I wore a me-made piece with each outfit. Let’s see how long I can keep this up 😉

I made these check pants at the end of last year when I needed some more “serious” clothes for job interviews. I scored this wool fabric at the factory outlet of René Lezard and it was just enough to sew these pants. I really like this pattern and I only shortened the hem by 5 cm. Additionally, I made my usual swayback adjustment but unfortunately took it in a little too much so that the pants are now a little tight in the waist. I will certainly use this pattern again and will be more careful with adjustments then. I really liked this outfit as it was comfortable but also dressed up enough for the office.

For the 5+ hour long trip by train to my parents I chose this comfortable outfit which is still kind of stylish. The me-made slipdress in combination with the thin turtleneck sweater and the biker jacket was actually my favourite outfit of the week. And which one is yours?

A comfortable outfit for a day on the road as we visited castles and christmas markets. This outfit was perfect for this, it worked for all activities and kept me warm at the same time.

I’m glad that I could finish this coatigan just in time for my winter capsule wardrobe. The felted wool is very cozy and the hidden pockets also keep my hands nice and warm. The pattern is actually almost finished and I hope that I can publish it before christmas.

Somehow I find dresses and skirts way more comfortable than pants. Do you, too? That’s why I chose this me-made skirt for the trip back to Berlin. You might already know this pattern from my darkblue version with contrasting stitching. I liked this pattern so much that this black denim skirt followed right away. Somehow this version has not made it to the blog yet, even though I tend to wear it even more. I really liked the combination with the comfortable turtleneck and OTK boots and it was just as comfortable as anticipated.
