Sure-Fit Designs Cruise Collection

A Christmas cruise is in the offing. It's a perfect opportunity to get to design and sew a coordinating cruise capsule wardrobe.

Here's what I used to make my travel capsule wardrobe:
No Side Seam Pants - General instructions are in the Children's Kit, but sewn with the Ladies Pant Kit pattern. Here's a video explaining how it's done
The Dress Kit Bodice was used for the tank tops. There are several tank top options available in our Digital E-Goods page:
The Dolman slouch top was also made from the Dress Kit Bodice and instructions for it can be found here: and the Dolman Design & Sew Along - only instead of a jacket, center front was placed on the fold and neckline was scooped.
The Dress Kit Bodice was used again for the Kimono Blouse, a SFD Design and Sew Along with wrap front and belted. Also instructions are on page 26 of the Dress Kit instruction book. 
The Dress Skirt pattern was used for optional skirt designs. Instructions can be found on page 29 - 31 and there are also basic wrap skirt instructions in the Children's Kit instruction book. In addition the Sure-Fit Academy offers several skirt designs
For information on designing an asymmetrical neckline and princess seams, please see our Dress Kit videos in our Learning Center:
