Inspired by the Spring Top Contest at Made-by-Rae.com and Kojo-designs.com series on sewing for your self, I broke out a couple of patterns I've had for awhile and did a little sewing for me.
The first one is a shirt using Simplicity #2892. The fabric is Lisette fabric I found on clearance at Joann Fabrics.
I always have a hard time figuring out what size to cut. I ended up taking this top in quite a bit on the sides. I also wish I would have made it a bit longer. I added an inch to the bottom, but should have added more. The neckline was a pain to make with all the ruffles. I don't think I would make another shirt from this pattern again.

The second thing I sewed was a cute knit dress using McCall's M6032. I love love this dress. Getting the gathering and belt right was a bit tricky, but it's so comfy to wear and didn't take too long to make. I got it done in a day between nap times and sewing after H-man went to bed. I would probably make this dress again if I found some cheap knit or something similar.
