I have bought the Lark Tee by Grainline studio a while ago but never tried yet. I picked the boat neck style and cut it straight from the pattern. I also had some left over jersey from one of my first ever dressmaking project that i really like.
There wasn’t quite enough for the T- shirt so I cut the front and short sleeves in my leftovers and bought a lovely soft yellow/ mustard jersey (NOT my usual choice of colour at all!) from my local shop for the back.
The t-shirt is rather easy to make as there are only 4 pieces in total. I did all the construction on the overlocker so it went together very fast.
I used my twin needles for the hem with 2 colours (pink and lime green) on the print and only lime green on the plain yellow (that was the closest colour thread I had in my stash and I didn’t want the t-shirt to sit there unfinished for a while). It worked very well and even better with a walking foot to feed the fabric through for the hems.
It was sunny on Sunday morning when we took the pictures but it was also -3°C (you can make out the frost on the roofs in my picture) so definitely NOT weather appropriate but I’ll enjoy wearing it in the summer I’m sure and it brought a pop of colour in the cold winter weather.
I’m definitely ready for warmer weather!
