Sew a Workwear Capsule – 10 Must-Sew Patterns

In my social sewing circles on Instagram and Facebook, I see people asking all the time for recommendations for workwear-appropriate patterns. And that’s where our story began! It’s one thing to sew loungewear, tees and jeans (which are totally my favorites!) but sewing pieces that will work for the office environment is a somewhat different endeavor. There are colors and fabric types to consider – and, of course, patterns.Screen Shot 2018 09 07 at 4.11.29 PM Sew a Workwear Capsule   10 Must Sew Patterns

Whether you’re looking to revamp your office attire or heading back to work for the first time in a while, we hope our Career Capsule serves as a good starting place. The featured 10 garments are easily combined to make more than 40 combinations, so no one will think you’re wearing the same thing twice. Find the full story in the Aug/Sept issue of Sew News. A special thank you to the pattern designers and fabric companies who supplied materials for this story.

Bottoms

Tops

Statement Pieces

In the issue, we share 9 different looks, but here are my top three that I’d be most likely to wear – this collection of garments is just so versatile.

  1. Wanda Pitts Brown says:

    These clothes are inappropriate for a work environment. They are too short, too tight and not flattering for all types of body shapes. I am tall and plus sized and although I can wear skinny jeans, I would never wear them to work.
