I tried out a pattern that is perfect for wardrobe basics – The Lark Tee from Grainline Studio. Grainline has a reputation for putting out well drafted, high quality patterns so I was excited about trying the tee out. When I first started sewing clothes, I focused on making what I couldn’t buy (or couldn’t afford to buy), like a merino wool hoodie. As I try more and more to avoid buying “fast fashion, being able to sew the basics that I wear every day is becoming more appealing. T-shirts are perfect for my wardrobe as a work/stay at home mom, and I love being able to add extra length.
