Larking around

Forgive the title, people, I wasn’t feeling very original this afternoon!

My post today is about this month’s Minerva Crafts Blogger Network project.  This one is not the most exciting, glamorous make in the world but I think it’s going to be a really useful addition to my wardrobe.

I chose to make the Grainline Studios Lark tshirt in some amazing striped jersey from Art Gallery Fabrics.  This fabric is not the cheapest, but I have to say, you really do get what you pay for.  It feels amazing, so soft with an almost brushed texture; it’s lovely to feel against you skin and I think it would be perfect for any baby sewing you had in mind.


Size wise, I cut according to my bust measurement and it worked out fine.  I had 1m of fabric to play with and, whilst there isn’t a massive amount left, it fit comfortably and allowed for stripe matching.


For all the details, head over to Minerva’s site now.


I’m hoping this might end up rivaling the Agnes in usefulness; high praise indeed!

Note that the pattern and fabric were provided by Minerva Crafts as part of my regular monthly allowance.  All opinions are, as ever, my own.
