Completed Spring Mini Capsule!

Hi all! I’m oh so happy to say that I have finished my Spring Mini Capsule using only Made for Mermaids and Patterns for Pirates patterns. I started this endeavor on March 28th, technically the day before I posted my capsule plans. I finished the last item on April 8th – two days before the end of the contest. I am really pleased by this, I was sure there was no way it was possible in the two week time frame!

My finished capsule is as follows:

  • Two Mama Claire’s
  • Mama Ava
  • Cross My Heart (CMH)
  • Cocoon Cardi
  • Mama Chloe
  • Long Pegs
  • Short Pegs
  • Siren Swim Top

Outfits that I’ve already worn out and about in this process are:

  • Grey Claire with CMH and RTW leggings
  • Watercolor Claire with Cocoon and Long Pegs
  • Short Pegs and Siren Swim – to pole!
  • Not technically an outfit, but around 20 minutes after I finished Ava, I put it on and ate a very late, very needed dinner. It went well with a teal RTW cocoon-style cardigan I already owned.

I know it seems weird to have a bra and short-shorts in a capsule. But considering I wear them roughly three times a week, it’s a staple in my wardrobe. My sports-bra-drawer runnith over. So of course that means I needed more! I can tell I’m going to enjoy making sports bras that actually fit me and keep everything in place while inverting.

The only item I haven’t worn out is Chloe. It’s still a little too cold to wear the Chloe outside. I ventured out for pictures in the little bits of sun that have started penetrating the neverending gray here. I’m looking forward to late spring when it will be a more viable wardrobe option.

Since you’ve gotten to see pictures in my updates (1, 2, 3), here’s a gallery that includes everything 🙂

Thoughts:

I wish I could’ve included Isabel (fabric came in Saturday night, so it would’ve been doable…if I wasn’t already finished with the capsule). I am still very excited to make it, since I think I got the perfect fabric:

A big thanks to Made for Mermaids and Patterns for Pirates for putting on this contest and forcing me to just freaking cut into my nice fabric already! 😀 😀
