Week 1 MMM'14

Thursday, May 1, 2014  - Me-Made Blouse
Pattern: Butterick 5817 (OOP)
Constructed: December 2013 never made it to the blog.
Fabric: black solid stretch satin and leopard print charmeuse
Friday, May 2, 2014 - Me-Made Dress
Pattern: Butterick 5385 (OOP)
Constructed: January 2014 never made it to the blog.
Fabric: snake print crepe de chine with black silk waistband.
When I made it I had intentions of putting it on the blog but the never ending winter weather sent the dress to my closet to reside for awhile. 
The pattern has some fantastic pleating details in both the front and the back. 

I did not wear any makes Saturday or Sunday but I did start to knock a few tasks off my UFO list! I was able to hand stitch in the car. Yes, I know it is crazy but I like to sew in the car.

I loathe the boredom of car travel yet when I throw some Thread Heaven, thread, scissors and a needle in the door handle of the passengers side, I can zone out and accomplish hand stitching tasks I regularly put off.

I wore my Green Chiffon Dress worn to work 
2nd look of the day Me-Made Jacket
Pattern: 1986 vintage Ozbek for Style

I turned back the front overlap and adjusted the buttons to maintain the new look of the front.
