If you're anything like me, you start off with a few things to pack into your suitcase and before you know it, you have to change the case to a bigger one. The reason is that so often we find we just "HAVE" to include this garment or that, and it seems that we leave home with an empty wardrobe, but a suitcase that is impossible to cart around because there's just too much in it.
Liz Davenport created a "Wardrobe in a Suitcase" many years ago, and it's just as pertinent today as it was back then. The concept is simple - have a few well designed (and made) garments with which you can mix and match, and it's absolutely amazing how many outfits you can create with a little bit of thought.

To whet your appetite though, here's a sample of her "wardrobe in a suitcase". I just love the idea - and for my plus size readers, look outside of the square. If you can build up a practical, workable, and affordable wardrobe by sticking to the basics and in a few chosen colour schemes, then you have the same advantage of any of our slimmer sisters. It's all in the challenge of allowing your imagination to go wild!
