Wardrobe Capsule 1 - Feminine Spring Outfits
Part 1 - Choosing the Garments
|Make an economical coordinating doll clothes wardrobe capsule for your American Girl Doll.|
The types of styles you can consider are:
- Tailored classic
- Sporty natural
- High fashion striking
- Feminine soft
- Trendy edgy
The capsule I have made is based on a formula that gives a good outfit variety with a minimum of garments. When you choose coordinating fabrics you can add one more top and get 2 new outfits with or without the jacket.
- 2 tops
- 2 bottoms
- 1 jacket plus 1 accessory.
The garments I chose for my spring capsule are:
- A sleeveless blouse
- Long trousers
- Tank top
- A long sleeved cardigan
- An infinity scarf that can double as a hair ribbon.
Deciding on how big to make the capsuleObviously the more garments you make the more outfits you can create but time is always a factor when you are trying to make some doll clothes in your spare time.
Instead of making one outfit of blouse, skirt, cardigan and a scarf I have made one extra top and one extra bottom that can be used to make at least 4 outfits with or without the cardigan.
I think this is a good use of my time.
Choosing co-ordinating fabrics is a big part of this way of looking at your doll's wardrobe. I show you how I did this next week.
It is easy to expand the capsule by using the fabrics to make more garments such as:
- Flared skirt
- T-shirt or a different style of tank top
- Short sleeved blouse
- Jumper or vest
