Seriously, how much fun was that?!
What's a capsule challenge?
Here's a quick recap: Over the course of the last six weeks, the Amelia Lane Designs community challenged ourselves to put together five essential items for our [Northern Hemisphere] summer plans.
The capsules are unique to each individual's life and summer plans. We had a wonderful time getting to know everyone through our capsules!
How do you know what to make?
Make whatever you need for your lifestyle or whomever you're sewing for.
Ideally a capsule is a small set of items that can mix and match to make lots of different outfits. But for the purposes of this challenge, it's whatever you needed for you.
We had themed weeks for inspiration though if you were stumped on what to make!
Check out the inspiration and ideas here:
Week 1: Tops and Tanks
Week 2: Bottoms
Week 3: Dresses and Rompers
Week 4: Swim
Week 5: Layers and Extras
Oh and the planner! The capsule planner is the greatest tool, I think I'll keep using it. Check it out in the Digital Downloads section.

Throwback Thrifty Thursday
Every week one of the team's favorite fabrics is discounted heavily (30% off!) and one of us sews up a free pattern to feature it! The fabric is announced on a blog post in the Thrifty Thursday blog category (here).
This week, in honor of the Capsule Challenge Recap, it's Throwback Thrifty Thursday! It's unprecedented! All previous Thrifty Thursday fabrics that are still in stock are marked down! Find them all in the Team Favorites category of the website during this feature.
