I’ve been on a roll since I got my sewing machine last December. I’ve only been sewing for about 6 months and look at all the things I’ve made! I would love love love to participate in Me-Made May next year, which is when you’re supposed to wear only clothes you’ve made yourself for the entire month. I’m still a looong way away from being able to do that, but I think it’s possible. Being able to make my own clothes is so empowering, and refashioning thrift clothes is a great way to save money and reuse what might otherwise be thrown away. Now, onto the post!
This is the Scout Woven Tee pattern from grainline studio. It is a beginner level pattern, and costs $6.50 to download. I used this navy ponte knit from JoAnn’s that I already had on hand, but I’m looking forward to making this in other types of materials and different colors.
I was in between sizes, so I just went with the larger one. It’s meant to be loose fitting, but I think I will go with the smaller size next time.
This is the second time I’ve had to use easing to sew on a short sleeve. I simply cannot get it to look right! As a result, these sleeves have a bit of a gather, but not so much that I can’t deal with it.
And here’s this picture, because it’s funny 😛
In other news, I got an A in my intro to financial accounting class today!
