Me-Made-May: The First Week

Have you joined in Me-made-May '15? Sometimes I think it is kind of silly of me to join since I typically I do wear my makes. But I find that it is an interesting look at what I might need to add to my wardrobe. Like this week, I felt that I could use some more flannel pjs when the temperatures went down to single digits and sometimes over the night dipping just below that minus mark. But I digress... 

This is what my first week looked like. I didn't have time to ask someone to snap pictures of me in the outfits so I used some of the project photos to give you an idea. I wore a total of 14 me-made items this week, some repeats that weren't counted in that number.

McCall's 7630: Pullover Top

It's an easy sewing project for a loose-fitting pullover top. It's my second go with this pattern and I still want to make another ...
