So my little one had a virus last week. With baby Tylenol, it was still 103.5. Yikes, not fun for a new Mom. At least she was still in good spirits and willing to nurse. During her down time, I made three new items. Today I'm wearing a full skirt that I made using the Simplicity 2224 pattern. It's quick and simple and I'm happy with the results, although it is a bit fuller than I am use to wearing. The top is made with Butterick 5497. My knit is a bit less stretchy than I previously thought, so I should probably have only gone down one size instead of two. I think this will still get some use, especially since I'm on a mission to lose the rest of my baby weight. I really like the back details on this one, so I have already plans to make a slightly looser version to add to my wardrobe.
Overall I am happy with both items, I just don't think I'd really pair them together in the future. The skirt is to "Bohemian Cool" for the top. I should be wearing a more flowy top to match. The great thing about making my own clothes? I can make that flowy top and have exactly what I want.
So I am planning on doing Me-Made-June and I want to try to have my entire outfit (dress or top & bottom) all made by me, instead of just one piece like I did for Me-Made-June. For that reason, I'm adding a bunch of separates to my sew list. I still will be making some dresses, but want to make sure I have enough to wear every day.
Tomorrow I will be wearing my new skirt that I made using the new Colette Pattern "Ginger". I have joined the Cupcake Goddess' sewalong for this one and plan to make all three versions .
