I have a confession to make: I’m not doing very well at coordinating my fit Capsule. Sure, I’ve made about 8 pieces of clothing for the Capsule at this point, but with the exception of the matching bra/leggings sets, nothing coordinates with each other!
I swear that after today, I’ll try to concentrate on adding some more neutral pieces to pull it all together….but for now, here’s my newest creation- the Greenstyle Lille tank!
The Lille has been a staple in my athletic drawer(s) for years, but always with modifications to lower the arm scythe and the neckline. Now, the Lille has been updated to add layers and incorporate most of the fitting changes I made on my own, which is good news, since I’m always loosing my pattern pieces and this way I don’t have to worry about losing all my modifications if I need to re-print.
I tested out the newly updated Lille in this chevron fabric from So Sew English- I knew it didn’t match anything in my athletic wardrobe, but I really wanted to use it anyway. I initially bought this fabric as part of a bundle planning to use it for leggings, but when it arrived it had less vertical stretch than I needed for the Inspires, so I repurposed it into a a Lille tank instead.
I really love the look (and feel!) of it, so I’ve decided to try to get back on track with the “planning” part of my capsule, but incorporating some matching pieces. The bundle I purchased came with a textured double-knit in pink, and I also ordered some white supplex, so I’m thinking maybe some white Super G’s and a matching vest or jacket?
What do you think? I’d love to find a way to use the leftover print for an accent somehow as well- please drop me a suggestion below!
If you’re interested in the updated Lille pattern, you can find it here. If you have already purchased it, you can find it in your downloads. If you haven’t, its on sale for the Capsule Challenge through 2/25/19! The lille also makes a fantastic summer maxi dress, or check out my gathered Lille hack from a couple years back HERE.
Side note: We shot all of these photos indoors. If you’re familiar with my blog, you’ll know that this is not the norm for me, nor is it in our comfort zone to do so. I actually find indoor lighting harder to handle than natural, outdoor light, but the weather and scheduling made that opportunity impossible, so we shot these in the bedroom. I was really concerned about how they’d turn out, but I was really impressed with them, which makes me curious- do you feel more inspired by indoor or outdoor shots, or does it matter to you?
