The third quarter of our Build a Wardrobe program has arrived, with our beloved Walking Cape pattern. The individual garment pattern, which includes instructions for selecting fabric, cutting, and constructing, can be purchased for $18 on our Resources page. This pattern is designed for use with our Studio Book Series and to be printed on wide-format or desktop printers, in both full-scale and tiled versions.
The Build a Wardrobe program is intended help you refresh and rebuild your personal (sustainable) wardrobe. It includes four brand new DIY patterns, which launch quarterly. Just like our Swatch of the Month program, subscribers use the Alabama Studio Book Series to create their garments. And the best part is—you can sign up at any time (like now) and receive the previous quarter’s materials.
For example: this quarter, all subscribers will receive a printed and digital version of the Walking Cape pattern, fabric yardage in their color(s) of choice, and thread to complete the project. And additionally, Build a Wardrobe subscribers are able to order custom DIY kits of each Build a Wardrobe pattern at discounted rates.
The first quarter introduced the DIY Maggie Dress and the second quarter provided another practical pattern, the DIY Alabama Sweater. The third quarter brings this perfect all-weather staple that features a collar, three pocket variations, and a snap closure.
