I finished this cute spring (ruffle) top -- sans ruffles -- from Made by Rae in one afternoon! The pattern is from a tutorial on Sew, Mama, Sew and I suggest giving it a try. It's very easy to follow and doesn't require much fabric. I used some old Amy Butler fabric I had in my stash and a little quilting solid that matched it well.
I might be getting the hang of this whole sewing-my-own-clothes thing!
