|Anna Dress, City Girl Top, Hemlock Tee|
Day 1 - By Hand London Anna Dress: Polka-dot rayon challis, slash neckline, knee-length (though you'll have to take my word on that one thanks to my headless torso-selfie... my torsie?), and successful invisible zipper insertion on the first try--huzzah! But I flubbed the facing/zipper technique. While it works just fine, I'm acutely aware that I did it wrong. Handmade charm, though, amIright?
Day 2 - See Kate Sew City Girl Top: A lightweight, semi-sheer linen sweater knit with half-sleeve option. (Once again, you'll have to trust me and my torsie.) The pattern suggests a sturdier, stable knit, but I really wanted something soft and drapey. I left the arms and hem unfinished, and I love it.
High on the success of that one--hello, speedy sewing!--I dove into another City Girl Top in an even looser sweater knit. It was, in a word, soterriblewhatwasIthinking. My mistake, though, not the pattern, and I've got another one planned, which you may or may not see here in one of these recaps at some point in the near or distant future
Day 3 - Grainline Studio Hemlock Tee: I think this a poly-blend tissue knit, but I stitched it up so long ago that I honestly don't remember. The shirt and pattern are cute enough (plus, the pattern's FREE!), but the fabric feels strangely stiff. This was actually the first time I'd worn this shirt, grabbing it from the sleep-shirt drawer in the spirit of Me Made May, and I have to say that it kind of grew on me over the course of the day. Maybe I'll bump it up into the workout-shirt drawer. Ha! Like I work out! Good one, Hemlock Tee.
There: I sewed, I wore, I recapped. Hurray for Me Made May! Maybe I'll see you next week.
