May Makes

Friday, June 26, 2020

May was a very productive month for me. I think I was feeling very inspired by having some unexpected time off and seeing all of the lovely Me Made May posts. I ended up making 7 new items (not counting the headband and the Lander shorts alteration)! Here's a run-down of my makes:

  1. I knit an all-white Jailbird Blouse pattern by PoisonGrrls knit in CoBaSi DK yarn. I knit up the size Medium but probably could have gotten away with the Small.
  2. A Friday Patterns Wilder Top in a light blue linen fabric. I sewed a size Large with no alterations.
  3. The Sew My Style pattern pick for May was the True Bias Rio Ringer Tee. I decided to make two versions. For both the long and short-sleeved tees, I stitched up a size 14 at the bust and graded to a size 16 at the hips. I used a stripey cotton jersey knit fabric from Sewing Studio for the short-sleeved version, some deep-stash stripey knit fabric for the long-sleeved version, and ribbing from Blackbird Fabrics on both.
  4. So many people have made the Mandy Boat Tee from Tessuti Patterns, and this month I gave it a go. I used some deep stash fuschia striped fabric (probably from Girl Charlie) and sewed up a size 2 and shortened it by 1 inch. If I make it again, I'd either try the size 3 or find a way to widen the armcye a bit. 
  5. I was inspired by designer brand, Lena Hoschek, to knit the PoisonGrrls Boardwalk Blouse. I knit up the size Small in CoBaSi fingering weight.

  6. I'd been wanting to make a funnel neck Tilly and the Buttons Coco for ages and when I saw this gray polka dot sweater knit from Sewing Studio, I decided to make it happen, even though it's not really seasonally appropriate. I even made a matching headband to go with it.
