Me-Made-May '15 Week 1

At the end of week 1 (which I'm counting as Saturday night), I am on track with my Me-Made-May pledge. (Yes, it was kind of a light pledge, but whatever.)

I wore my Cake Hummingbird top to dinner for a friend's birthday last week. Every time I look in the mirror I simultaneously feel awesome and roll my eyes at that crazy wonky peplum. I really need to make a new top with that pattern (more carefully this time), but somehow I still think I'm going to keep reaching for this one for a while.

Last night I finally mended something from my mending and alteration pile, too. At least two years ago, the drawstring from my Be Present yoga pants got twisted around some other laundry in the washing machine and ripped in half. All I needed to do was press it flat again, sew it back together, and thread it through the waist again. Why did that take me so long?

FYI, my Be Present pants were a really worthwhile purchase. High quality, made in the USA, and who doesn't want to wear a lotus on their butt?
