A “capsule wardrobe” is a personalized collection of basic, wearable pieces that stand the test of time. Your capsule wardrobe can redefine your personal style or simply create a foundation for a set of fabulous statement pieces. Choose two basic patterns (a top and either skirt or pants) as the basis of your capsule wardrobe. First, refine the fit of both pieces using muslin mockups. Next, determine your signature style, color palette and wardrobe needs. Learn basic pattern manipulation techniques to add variety. Begin working on one or more pieces in class, then finish the rest at home.
