EYMM Capsule Skirt Tour

 Welcome to my stop on the EYMM Capsule Blog Tour!
It's no surprise that I love EYMM patterns but I had never made a capsule skirt before now.
Well, in about an hour I made not one, but three skirts!
The directions are super easy to follow and with the no trim pages, the pattern goes together fast.

 I have been eyeing this delicious knit at Joann's for awhile and it was perfect for these skirts.
This knit is so soft and the skirt is so comfortable. It is great for everyday wear. Switch out your fabric choice and you can have a fancy special occasion skirt.
I love that the pattern is available for babies up to adults and for dolls too!
I love that Little Miss and I where able to match. Pretty soon, she won't be as excited as she was today.

The pattern includes the straight hem like I made and a hem that offers more backside coverage.
There is also pockets, a regular waist and a fold over waistband.
Let's see your Capsule Skirts!

My Little Plumcake: Frolic Capsule

I am so excited to share with you the new My Little Plumcake Frolic Capsule!
First, what is a "capsule"? 
Well, Michelle from My Little Plumcake describes it best:
 "So, what is a Capsule Wardrobe? Capsule Wardrobe's are popping up all over social media. They are a mini wardrobes made up of versatile pieces that can be mixed and matched to create different looks. Capsule Wardrobes often help minimize, simplify and save (space & $). We will continue to release new patterns that can be incorporated into the collection in 2016. Even better news is that a few will be free add-on's featured on our blog!"

The first five pieces of the capsule are here and the are amazing!
They are the Chiffon Skirt, Crop Top, Jacket, Jumpsuit and Shorts.  

First up is the Chiffon Skirt and Crop Top. 
This too cute top is a super quick sew and the skirt consists of layers of tulle and chiffon. 
The top buttons (or snaps) up the back and the skirt has a comfortable elastic waistband.

 Next, the Jumpsuit.
The Jumpsuit is made of knit and was easy enough for my potty training princess to get on and off.
It has an unique design at the ankle and pockets (which are always a hit).

 Last but not least, the Jacket and Shorts.
I have a confession to make. 
I found the fabric for the Jacket and Shorts at our church's thrift store.
It is vintage, cream and gold.
When I saw it I knew it had to be apart of my capsule. 
It kind of drove my fabric decisions.
This fabric and the Capsule is exactly what I needed for the Little Miss' perfectly posh spring wardrobe.
