Me Made May day 7 - #mmmay15

Today I was dressed all wrong.  It's been hot here and the weather report said 85 for today.  It was cold and windy and I froze most of the day.  Fortunately I had a little jacket in my car and I grabbed that at lunch time!  This is what I wore for #mmmay15 today:

Yeah, it's a pretty crappy picture to.  I look like I'm going to fall over backward.  I even adjusted the vertical line on the photo so it wouldn't be so bad!  Oh well.  I don't have a photographer and working with auto shoot at 6:30 a.m. is not the best.

The top is The Sewing Workshop Now and Zen pattern.  This is the Now shirt.  I have made that top twice and I really like it.  This one is lengthened.  The first version was really too short for me.

These crops are from the Japanese sewing book, Simple Modern Sewing.  I really love these pants and will make more of them.  Super comfortable and actually pretty flattering, not that you could tell in this picture!

So, what's up next?  I'm going for the Colette Moneta Dress.  I think I'm going to make the sleeveless version with the bodice in the black knit and the skirt and collar in the print.  Hope I can get to it this weekend.  We have dinner guests on Saturday and family on Sunday for Mother's day.  I guess I'll have to get up early on Saturday and try to squeeze in a few hours!

You look great Nancy. I've made many versions of the Now Shirt and used the collar on others. Did you know that there is a Flickr group with photos from the Simple Modern Sewing book? You should add your photo!
