A Mini Capsule for Tweens

As we were preparing for the cooler weather we found a few holes in this girls closet.  She loves to wear tunics and leggings and needed more to work into her wardrobe.  We loved this mustard dot (surprise, surprise) french terry from Knitpop and built a mini capsule around it.

While back to school shopping she fell in love with these GapKids leggings.  We know that rtw leggings rarely fit so we set to find fabric to recreate them.   This wildflower print (also from Knitpop) was perfect!

She got two more leggings out of fabric from Raspberry Creek Fabrics.  This tropical floral print made a cute pair of capris.

I used two tried and true patterns for these looks.  The Sloane Sweater from Love Notions is so full of options that she can have a closet full and no one will know they’re all the same pattern!  This is the simple classic tunic version but we love the yoke version too.  Our go-to leggings pattern is the FREE Love Notions Leggins’.  With a yoga waistband these sew up in a flash!

We love these classic, everyday looks and know they’re going to get worn all fall and winter!
