My Me Made May outfit today is a short sleeve Negroni, from @seamwork, in lightweight cotton plaid from @stonemountainfabric (from the half price floor!).

Fun fact: this is the first pattern I bought, years before I owned a sewing machine (and when the pattern was still a “Colette”). A friend was helping me sew it on her sewing machine, and like many of my projects, my first attempt (in a terrible yellow cotton) lay half completed in a drawer for years before I picked it up again.

This has become a tried and true pattern for me once I got the length adjustment right and figured out I’m an “extra-ish large” (large in the shoulders, xl on the torso).
