    First day of Me Made May 2015 and I still had sleep in my eyes while snapping these quick photos.
    Lemon Drop Top by AMH in a very comfy, yet easily misshapen french terry bought over a year ago from Girl Charlee. Look closely and you'll see the mistake I made from rushed late night sewing.. Had to turn the back pattern piece since the added length ate more fabric than I expected and had to improvise. Luckily, there is stretch both ways. Added 3 in. to the length, front and back. Left off sleeve band.
    The pants are in a stretch bengaline from Joann's made using Style Arc's Claudia Pants- zip up slim pants that are supposed to mimic cigarette pants- mine came out wayyy too big for the size I measured. REALLY glad I didn't use my nice fabric for this yet.
    Will go down a size and see if that makes a difference since these are super comfy, although my waist facing keeps rolling on me- perhaps it needs to be tacked down. Took off at least an inch all around, sometimes more.
