Introducing My Capsule Wardrobe: Summer Dreaming, Our New eBook!

We’re incredibly excited to bring you the third eBook in our My Capsule Wardrobe collection. Welcome Summer Dreaming!

Designed with carefree sunny days in mind, our My Capsule Wardrobe: Summer Dreaming eBook collection contains five super chic, easy-to-wear patterns, each with that little touch of holiday-inspired glamour.

The five patterns expand to a full capsule wardrobe with twelve variations, including beautiful dresses, skirts, tops, trousers, a jumpsuit and jacket, which all mix and match seamlessly to give you a myriad of stylish summer looks.

Quick sew-in-an-afternoon projects stand alongside super satisfying more involved makes, and all work together to form a collection that’s as fun to sew as it is to wear. Some of you might be happy to know this is our first totally zip-free eBook – and there are pockets galore!

We’re very pleased to say all patterns come in our new extended size range of UK 6 – 30, making this our most inclusive eBook yet.

Shall we meet the patterns?

Alba Skirt

The Alba Skirt is a fun-to-sew wrap skirt that sits on the waist, and features a high-low hem look. Fastening with ties, there are no tricky closures to contend with. Go high drama with a sassy ruffle frill around the hem, or keep it simple and classic – great for when you want your fabric to do the talking!

Style your Alba Skirt with wedges and the Siena or Ravello Tops, and you’ve got a summer look sorted!

Choose a fabric with lots of drape to ensure maximum swish!

Ravello Top & Dress

As easy to wear as it is to sew, Ravello is a wrap dress and top with four variations! Choose from maxi or knee-length for the dress, or hip-height or waisted for the top.

Ravello wraps across the front bodice, and features comfortable grown-on sleeves with cuffs, ties at the waist, and a gently curved hem. The raw edges of the neckline and hem are neatly finished with bias binding. Whether you wear yours out to dinner or for lounging by the pool, Ravello is sure to keep you stylish but comfy!

Choose from a range of fabrics for Ravello, including viscose, crepe, double gauze, linen, cotton lawn and more!

Porto Jumpsuit & Trousers

Casual, cool and incredibly easy to wear, the Porto Jumpsuit is a holiday essential. An outfit-in-one, the loose-fitting bodice and trousers ensure you stay comfortable in the sun’s rays, whilst the elasticated channel shows off your waist without feeling restrictive. The bodice buttons to the waist, making the Porto Jumpsuit easy to pull on without the need for a zip!

If you’re a pocket lover, Porto is right up your street, with patch pockets on the bodice, and in-seam ones in the trousers. The short sleeves are folded up and held in place with tabs, and the full collar and collar stand give a lovely finish to the neckline.

Love separates? The trousers variations features an on-the-waist waistband and same super comfy fit.

Sew Porto in a lightweight woven fabric for supreme breeziness!

Siena Dress, Top & Skirt

Lisa’s favourite pattern in this eBook, Siena is the perfect summer sundress. Feminine without being cutesy, Siena boasts a princess-seamed fitted bodice with sweetheart neckline, your choice of skinny rouleaux or slightly wider straps, a button-up front with gathered skirt, patch pockets, and a shirred back panel on the top for easier fitting.

Siena also comes with the option to make it as a top and a skirt, perfect for pairing with your other Summer Dreaming makes!

Sorrento Jacket

The quintessential denim jacket, Sorrento is the classic workhorse piece. Sew this once and you’ll love it for years to come! Designed to team beautifully with the rest of the collection, it’s the ultimate throw-on when the evenings turn chilly.

With tonnes of classic details and a clever construction, Sorrento features a front and back yoke, chest pockets, collar, cuffs and waistband tabs, all finished with lines of immaculate topstitching.

Stick to tradition with blue denim – or try something different with a khaki!

Let’s take a sneak peek inside!

All the patterns come with fully-illustrated step-by-step instructions, along with an abundance of sewing, fabric and fitting tips.

Head to the fabric shop with confidence with the Fabric Inspiration pages!

Each pattern comes with a detailed sizing chart complete with finished garment measurements for both sizes, as well as comprehensive layplans.

What is an eBook and who is it for?

An eBook is a digital book, designed to be viewed on a computer, laptop or tablet. Much like a PDF pattern, once your order is placed you will automatically receive your eBook, and all the patterns, by email. No waiting for the postman!

Level-wise, there’s something for everyone in this collection, though most patterns fall in the intermediate range. However, with loads of variations, most of the patterns can be made simpler or more challenging depending on which version you choose.

No matter what your level, all patterns come with with clear instructions and step-by-step illustrations, guiding you every inch of the way.

    Is it possible to get the ebooks individually? I would love to have the Ravello pattern but not the other patterns.

    Is there any chance to buy it separately?

    Best regards and thanks for your help in advance,

      The patterns won’t be available separately I’m afraid. They’ll only ever be available as a collection
