I wore my self drafted chiffon skirt.  I love this skirt and I need to make another one.  Maybe I will write a tutorial for it.

Day 19 Tuesday

I wore my white cotton burnout paisley McCall’s 5436 top from forever ago over a turquoise tank top with a red and orange necklace and jeans.  I love the turquoise with the red and orange combination.

Day 20 Wednesday

I wore my leopard challis Simplicity 1280 with a lilac studded belt and jeans.  This was the first top I made using challis and I don’t know why I waited so long.  I want to make all the things forever with challis!

Day 21 Thursday

I wore my Simplicity 1317 top with jeans.  I really like this pattern as evidenced by the 3 versions I have made so far.  More will follow for fall.

Day 22 Friday

I wore two me made pieces today.  The striped vest is Butterick 5759 that I made in March.  The other is the New Look 6875 top I made way back in 2013.  I have made 2 versions of this top and it is a great basic that I really need to make more of.  That way I do not keep buying RTW versions from Target.  I did make some fabric purchases on Friday as well. One of which was for another version of this vest. Only it has sleeves, so I guess it is a cardigan now. The other was for a dress. More on these later this week.

Ha! I didn’t realize it until posting these pictures but the t-shirt I am wearing here is the other version of New Look 6875 I made from 2012.  The sweater I am wearing is McCall’s 6844 made last year from Girl Charlee hacci sweater knit.  I have to say I am not pleased with how this sweater has worn.  The pattern is perfect and I will make several more.  The fabric, however, is a whole other story.  I love Girl Charlee, but this fabric piled as soon as I washed it and it only continues to get worse.  The blue piles onto the white and the white onto the blue.  Maybe I just need to get one of those sweater shaver things, but as it is I am hesitant to buy the hacci sweater knit from GC.  Anyone else have this problem or should I give this fabric another shot?

Day 24 Sunday

No picture for Sunday.  I kinda cheated and just wore my pajama pants.  I did make them so I guess maybe I didn’t cheat.
