Simplicity 2593


Lets see... day thirteen Me-Made-May. I'm going to try and catch up with all the other participants (it seems they are on day 17 - ooops). So this is the ensemble (I can never say that with a straight face) I wore on day 13.
I'm not sure it's necessary to show off this top, because if you have the pattern- it's on the envelope exactly like this. I was looking for a pattern to make a stripy top and when I saw this one already made up, perfection. I did not change a thing. The pattern is Simplicity 2593. A Cynthia Rowley pattern. I am going out on a limb here to highly recommend this pattern.


The skirt is Burda 8155. I made this skirt when I was searching for the perfect pencil skirt. Although I like this skirt, I actually found a pencil skirt pattern that I like even better.
This one.

is it just me or is this month flying by?

Cynthia Rowley just rocks doesn't she! Great combo.

Oooh. Now I must go wear my Cynthia Rowley top (also sewn in the blue seersucker) with a floral skirt. Thanks for reminding me of another way to wear it!!!

BTW, your neckline turned out so much cuter than mine. I fought with it until I had something I could live with. Too much of a perfectionist? Maybe.
