This month I sewed up 11 2/3 yards:
- McCall's 7094 top in animal print rayon challis - 1.5
- McCall's 7167 romper in ponte/shirting - 1.5 (for my daughter)
- Burda 03/2014 #101 jacket in blue/gray suiting - 1.75
- Butterick 5760 skirt in blue/gray suiting - 1
- Vogue 9032 pants in blue/gray suiting - 2.25
- McCall's 6559 robe in floral linen/rayon woven - 3 2/3
Favorite: I did a great job this month of adding super lovable garments to my closet - yay me! However, as we type, I am staring (with the side-eye) at my M7094 top. I swear I pretreated the fabric -- I've gotten to where everything is washed when it comes out of it's FabricMart box and/or SR Harris/Hancock Fabrics bag! :) And it's a crinkled hot mess.
Accomplishments: I won 2nd place in the wardrobe contest! Yay!!!! Also, I did something that I've wanted to do since I first started sewing; a 3 piece suiting collection. I totally have enough fabric left to make a sheath dress or another skirt; we will see.
For June I really want to catch up on my Burda challenge garments. I cannot find anything in March to love and am thinking if I just give myself "permission" to skip it, I can move forward.
I also have a couple "unselfish sewing" projects in the works for the kids.

I didn't repat any whole outfits, which honestly I knew wouldn't be that hard. Well...I totally want to wear my McCall's 5890 dress all.the.time!
I wore both V1411 and M6996 3 times each. I had to force myself not to wear M6996 more throughout the month. I wore M6839 and NL6108 twice each (AND my distressed RTW jeans 3 times - I totally put them on after the interview suit came off. I love those jeans!!).
I wore my Style Arc jeans 4 times! Definitely find myself reaching for them :)
Hope you enjoyed MMM too!
