Me Made May '17

Yes, I was able to wear something I had made every day in May.  No, I didn't take a picture every day so you'll have to take my word for it.  And yes, I did complete four items for my wardrobe...although "items" might be stretching it a bit.  
When I was working on my packing and sewing plan for our European trip the weather was cold and rainy and nasty.  There still may be rain but the temps have warmed up quite nicely so one of these two garments will not be joining us on vacation today.

This is a silk from Fabric Mart that I just hd to have when I saw the colors.  I love the burgundy and the pinks and the brown and knew it would be a great kimono jacket.  It's the now almost classic Simplicity 1318 still in the catalog.  
I lined it with a burgundy silk georgette just to give it a little more warmth.  I'm wearing it with the second new item, a Margarita tank top in brown poly, definitely making the trip with me.
Does this kimono need a passport?
Then I wanted another rayon knit tunic and turned to another TNT pattern from this past fall, Butterick 5925, a Katherine Tilton pattern.
Or does this tunic need a passport?

The fourth item in May was this striped infinity scarf with the hidden pocket.  Ok, not an entire garment but I will get a lot of use out of it in June.

The winner....yes, the Butterick tunic.  I am a lucky girl to be able to go on this trip and count my blessings each day.  Here's hoping you are having some good luck in your sewing room.  No blogging for several weeks but I will see you on Instagram.
