Arielle Skirt

Just in time for Me-Made-May, I've made myself a new skirt! I noticed last year that my me-made wardrobe was mostly tops and dresses, sorely in need of pants and skirts. I've failed to make a significant dent on the pants front (with the exception of my Ginger jeans and a couple Hudsons), but have made progress in the skirt department. Add this one to the list.

Playhouse Dress x 2

My younger niece is turning 2 years old very soon, so I thought I would sew something up for her. But then, once I got started on her gift, I decided it made sense to make something for her older sister, too. Assembly line sewing is efficient, but man, it's tiring!

Batik Ilsley Skirt

I've been so enamored with my Maya tops, when Marilla Walker offered up her Ilsley Skirt pattern, I pounced on it. Such a cute basic skirt, plus, it's free!

Pattern Testing: True Bias Southport Dress

But I didn't actually die, so I'm back to tell you that in between dives, I was wearing and loving this little number, my tester version of the True Bias Southport Dress:

Lisette Cut-out Dress: Butterick 6168

Wow, I was in love with this Lisette dress, Butterick 6168, the second I saw it! Those pleats: yes. That v-neck/cross-over bodice: yes. The cut-out: maybe. I was intrigued...
