Me Made Week 1

My pledge for "Me Made May" was to wear three items that I made a week. I will be posting weekly instead of daily. 
First is S4076. I changed the sleeves so they are 3/4 in stead of a short sleeve.

Below is also S4076 view B. 
Last is S2603 view E. This is a 1 yard sleeveless top!
Please forgive the messy bedroom in the background of my last picture! This is my daughter's room. She has been in Indonesia for the last two years serving in the Peace Corps. She is returning in 5 weeks, 2 days, 8 hours, 59 min. and 38 seconds, but who is counting :)
Did I learn anything from this week? First I love S4076. View B looks great on me, but I need to lengthen it. As you can see I am wearing a light green cami underneath to help with the shortness. It was fun to gather all the things I have made and start combining and accessorizing to come up with an outfit. I did not take pictures with the cardigans that I wore with each because I wanted you to see the tops. Not  every fabric is my favorite, but I was able to "make it work"!
I am getting ready for next week!!!


  1. All your tops are so cute! Thank you so much for letting me know about you. Sounds like you are learning a lot from Me-Made-May 2014 too. It has been a most positive experience in all sorts of different ways for me. Oh I'd be counting down for my daughter's 'homecoming' too! How exciting!

  2. You have a dazzling accumulation of carefully assembled cardigans. The greater part of your outfits are extremely chic. You will get some an opportunity to sew once more. Presently your papers are more vital and you can wear the delightful pieces of clothing you have already made!
