Me-Made-May 2015: Week 3

Week 3 was a busy week for me: 2 weeks away from my son's wedding! All our kids were home for the Memorial Day Weekend, when the Bachelor/Bachelorette parties were also scheduled for that Saturday.
That explains the fall off of my pledge of 5 Me-Made garments/week. Oh well.


Butterick 6028: Katharine Tilton pants (not yet blogged) seen here in gray last week


Hand-knit (7/2010): Broken Rib Tank


Those pants again! worn clubbing with my sister-in-law Lois to celebrate the Bachelorette
and her "sail before the veil":


Cassie and the Moms

Another busy week ahead, but I should make my 5 garment pledge....we'll see!

Week 2 of Me-Made-May 2015: I find I do wear the things I make, I'm just not used to taking pictures
of myself this much LOL!   In no particular order:

 

                   Simplicity 2345 (me and my Mom: Shirley on Mother's Day


      Butterick 6028 (not blogged yet, a test garment to try a Katharine Tilton pants pattern)


           Simplicity 2648 (hands down one of my favorite patterns)


      McCalls 1318 (can you tell by the look on my facr that's is almost time for the end of a work week?!?)


     Simplicity 4076 (not blogged, pattern is discontinued, not a favorite, but easy to wear)

New Look 6323: MMMay 2015 #2

It is a beautiful Spring day here in Michigan....finally! Feels good to crack out the sandals and summer clothes, and the new top I made using New Look 6323, View C:

I thought this tomato-red poly fabric was so cute.....the print looks like little kites!
This is an old-school poly, dare I say vintage, fabric scored at the Salvation Army: 3 yds for $1.99.
And though this pattern calls for a knit, this poly works okay....would work better if it had more drape.

I found the neckline to be a little high for my taste, and will lower it a bit next time:


Hope the weather is treating you well, too!
