DIY – “CASUAL WOMAN” Collection – Mix & Match

Happy Wednesday!

Well, I’ve done it you guys! I’ve completed my first Collection. Although I had to close it off before I wanted to, I’m so proud of myself for finishing. At the start I projected that I would sew between six and eight pieces, but ended up with nine, so I exceeded my own expectation. You go GIRL! I actually made a cardigan that didn’t make the cut because I made it too big. That’s okay, I’ll make it again later. Now that I have the beginning of my new casual wardrobe, I look forward to adding more pieces, in many colors, prints and textures.

So, how many outfits do you think I was able to create with the nine pieces from the Collection?  Are you ready? I came up with 15 different combinations by pairing each top that I made (except the hooded tunic) with all four bottoms. Let’s take a look!

    Beautiful collection Anita. I have been following your tutorials closely and really appreciate your efforts and encouragement. Made the sheath dress this week in a cheaper fabric as a practice because I want to make another one more Perfectly, if possible. I would like a zipper lesson from you! Thanks very much

    Hi Anita!

    Everything looks so awesome! And you put it together so nicely! I wish you would have a class on how to make bodysuit. I have this pattern but I am afraid to make it, it looks too complicated.
    You inspired me! I want to make my own mini business skirts collection now ☺️ I am just a beginner, but your classes help me so much!
    Thank you for inspiration and for sharing your knowledge!!!
