CAPRI TOP - CONSTRUCTION TIPS:

This sewing pattern is quick and simple to make - It's a perfect starting point for an absolute beginner. This top is so versatile, due to it's internal supporting layer - it can be made from pretty much anything. Beginners should try using an organza or stiffened cotton, to create a casual textured piece. However, for a more sultry Burlesque look, you could use a high-sheen duchess satin and compliment it with beading. We've gone for a more modern look by using a geometric print to created an interesting effect with the pleated bust. 

 

CAPRI TROUSER - CONSTRUCTION TIPS:

These trousers are relatively easy to construct - They benefit from simple pocket construction and would suit a beginner well. However, the front fly can be tricky for someone with little experience in this area, so we think this is a great pattern for beginners looking to push their ability further.
Practice your zipped fly, by constructing a toille or sample using cheap material - this will also help you achieve the best fit for your trousers.
