Mid-January: Keeping Warm

Hi guys! How is January going for you? I'm using my winter mini-capsule as my wardrobe base, adding other clothes from my closet when I have the desire and time to think more about getting dressed. If I want to throw on something quickly, I just grab a few pieces from the mini-capsule and I know they'll work fine. 

For this outfit, I added an indigo cardigan to pieces from my mini-capsule.
Striped tunic (similar)
Frye boots (here in black)

This outfit is all from my mini-capsule. It's super comfortable and great for running around in.
Tunic made by altering the Linden Sweatshirt pattern
Suede Vans

Here I added a white sweater from J. Crew Factory that I bought last year. Here's a curved hem sweater currently at Boden.
Flares (similar)

Here's another one with items drawn completely from my mini-capsule.
Striped t-shirt (similar)
Flares (similar)

For this outfit, I added a black tank top and a newly sewn sweater. The sweater is the Driftless cardigan, but I lengthened the pattern by 7" since I didn't yet have a super-long cardigan.
Frye boots (here in black)

Here is another newly sewn top, the Toaster sweater. I also added my old Clarks ankle boots from my closet and the flared jeans from my mini-capsule.
These boots are Clarks Spyes, like mine, but with cute buckles instead of the fringe that mine have.

I've made a reasonable sewing plan for this year, intending to make only things that I think I'll wear a lot. Of course I keep adding to the list, so who knows how many things I will make by the end of the year. I'm on a roll with sewing so far this month, so you may see a couple more new things in the near future. I'm talking about the things I make on, so please come visit if you are into that.
