Week 2 of Me Made May is in the books! This week required a little extra preparation because I went to a wedding over the weekend, and made my first-ever floor-length dress. You’re getting a little sneak peek here of a major project.
I tend to be one of those people who is always cold. I frequently sleep in flannel pants and a hoodie. Somehow, the allure of the shorts and cami pajama set keeps getting me. At least I can pair them with my parrot robe!
I reorganized my stash the other day, and realized that I had a decent chunk of this navy polka dot knit fabric leftover from making a dress in the fall. I wanted to make something, but not go fabric shopping (shocking, I know), so next I searched through my patterns. Ultimately, I decided to make a polka-dotted peplum top with McCall’s 6896.
Do these fabrics look familiar? That’s because they are all leftover from a pair of running tights I made this winter. I didn’t have enough leftovers to make another pair of tights, so I decided to make a matching sports bra instead. I am guilty of wearing them at the same time… though with a shirt on top!
