May 6: This is Simplicity 2255. Probably the first button-down shirt I ever made.
This one has a few flaws (the interfacing I used in the placket and collar causes most of them), but it is still a shirt I wear often. I call it my Asian Lumberjack shirt, because of the combination of mandarin collar and plaid fabric.
May 7: Vogue 1314 made out of a silk jersey. I like the side gathers, the longer length, and the sleeves on this pattern. I've been searching for more go-to knit patterns that could be used for work clothes and this one definitely fits the bill.
The dress turned out a smidge tighter than I prefer, but that is mostly because my silk jersey is not as stretchy as regular knits.
May 8: This me-made outfit it self drafted. The skirt is the second garment I EVER sewed and the first one I made without a pattern. It is made from an embroidered border-print cotton and lined with a sheet (I didn't have any hemming to do).
The top is a self-drafted pattern I made recently, finished entirely in french seams. It's a very universal blouse, and goes with most everything in my closet.
I did redo the zipper on the skirt last year, because my original attempt left a white zip showing, and a small gap between the top of the zip and the waistband. It's all fixed now!
I hope your May is going swimmingly!
