Sewing for myself

It is not often that I can squeeze in some sewing for myself.   I have a stack of fabric and lots of plans, but most of my sewing is the kind that pays the bills!  This week I managed a few minutes here and there and made this:



I've had this red crepe in my closet for years and finally put it to good use.  I used Simplicity pattern # 4047.  I changed the neckline just a bit and hemmed rather than faced the sleeve.   Pretty easy!
