Some stories are short (I needed a white top. The End.), and some are a little more involved.
S3759)was only recently finished. I can't even recall how long ago I cut it out, but I'm sad it took me so long to get to the sewing part, because I think it's quite flattering. When I finally picked it up to sew it, it was in the wake of my success with that slinky knit dress. I should have lengthened the stitch a tad when I hemmed this one, but overall, I think it turned out well. I bought the fabric to go with an Amy Butler print I plan to make into pants, but it turns out, this yellow (it's hard to see the color here) goes with a few other self-stitched items. I love the gathers at the neckline. Next time, though, I might make it a smaller size on the top area, leaving the larger size at the hips.
The pants, I still can't recall what pattern I used. That's a knit fabric, and a little on the wild side. I think the fabric was an impulse purchase. But, dang, they're comfy!
This skirt, S5914 is a really nice fit. I've made it in brown twill as well, and I think I've got another one cut out. Mom and I were at Hancock Fabrics one day, and saw this skirt up on the wall, made up in denim (even though the pattern shows it in suiting fabrics), loved the way it looked, and immediately bought the pattern and some nice denim. It's even top-stitched with that gold thread like they do on jeans.

So that's it for week 2. Like I said, every piece has a story. Some are more interesting than others, and maybe, some should never be shared.
