Inspired by a trip to Rome, Closet Case has created the brand’s first capsule collection
The Rome collection has been designed as a chic capsule wardrobe, and is filled with simple to make and gorgeous to wear pieces that pair effortlessly with one another. Each pattern has been thoughtfully designed with beginners in mind, and is filled with enough interesting design details and variations to entice more advanced sewers too.
The collection includes three versatile sewing patterns – Pietra Pants & Shorts, Fiore Skirt and Cielo Top & Dress. All of the new patterns can be made with a wide variety of fabrics such as crisp wovens like linen, chambray, light to medium weight cottons, and drapey fabrics like rayon challis, silk and tencel.
The Fiore Skirt is a chic, high-waisted A-line skirt with just the right amount of flare and volume. This is a beginner friendly pattern with lots of variations and this elevated basic has tons of outfit potential. Available in above or below the knee lengths, this skirt sewing pattern has three views. View A is a simple flared skirt with an invisible zipper at the back, while view B is an asymmetrical wrap skirt with single hip pocket, and view C buttons up the front with curved patch pockets.
The Pietra Pants & Shorts are the best of both worlds and include a flat front, high-waisted silhouette with the comfort of an elastic waist in the back. Featuring lengthening panels in the front with slanted hip pockets and a hidden waist stay, you’ll never want to take them off. Choose between four leg styles: a wide leg in floor-skimming or cropped length (View A), a slim and tapered leg (View B), or gently flared shorts (View C).
The Cielo Dress & Top is an easy, breezy take on a boxy tee and shift dress, and loaded with interesting details and interchangeable features – it will fast become a wardrobe building favourite.
Choose between a semi-cropped top with a cuffed short sleeve (View A) or dramatic gathered long sleeve (View B). Or, make an easy fitting dress with sleek inseam pockets (View C), or without pockets (View D). All views have a slightly dropped shoulder, angled shoulder yoke and roomy fit, with a choice between an elegant bias binding or faced neckline finish.
