FO B5495 and Me-Made-June Week 1

I finished a top I had planned to work on the prior week. This was a top that moved up to the top of my to-do list after seeing Adrienne's version. I plan on trying this again in a few printed fabrics that I purchased.

Overall I am very happy with my color-blocked version of this top. It is a fun summery top that adds a punch of color to a my outfit. It's paired with my black pants using Simplicity 2618. These pants are my go to pants for comfortable, yet work appropriate.

Last week was the start of Me-Made June. Here are my outfits for the first four days.

Starting Bottom Left and Going Clockwise:
* Butterick 5396 Top with Simplicity 2618 Pants
* McCalls 5276 Jacket with Vogue 1250 Dress
* Simplicity 2590 Cardigan with Simplicity 2594 Top
* Vogue 1179 Dress worn as a Top

I started making a pair of pants last night but stopped short after trying them on and finding it is too tight! Stinker. I'm cutting a different pants pattern tonight (in a larger size). lol.

Lovely top and what a great color combo.

The bold colours look great on you. Bummer about the pants - always tissue fit before cutting.

You look great and you've made these as well. They are so much better than RTW.
