Another Lark tee

I love making tshirts at the moment. Actually, just working with knits is a joy. Especially if I can complete the garment quickly and use just the overlocker and coverstitch machines.

I have been buying fabrics that are beautiful and can be used in my business casual profession. Sometimes it works well, other times I think the top is more casual. As is the case with this beautiful fabric and top.

I got the fabric from Seamstress Fabrics. It is a lovely cotton + spandex with a gorgeous print and has sold out. I did buy it in April 2018 and added it to the stash while I pondered which pattern to use. It has the most beautiful weight and drape. I chose the long sleeved lark tee and set about cutting it.

As always – no dramas. I cut out one weekend and sewed it together a few weekends later. As I finished the collar with the coverstitch I added a label from Kylie and the machine. I’ve amassed several of these.

The details

Fabric – Selia print, cotton + spandex – 1.5 metres, around $50

Pattern – Grainline Lark – used so many times, adjusted to fit a while ago. Effectively free.

Label – “Handmade” from Kylie and the Machine – $1.00

Annoyance factor – Low

Totals = $51.00

Do it again? The pattern – yes. I love the fabric and will keep a eye out for similar quality fabrics. This one is closer fitting than ideal for work, but is terrific as casual wear. Very nice casual wear.
