Grainline Studio : Lark Tee
Line Drawings Bluing : Millie Fleur Knit by Bari J. from Art Gallery Fabrics
Photographed in Hope Town, Elbow Cay, Bahamas
We’ve been back from our holiday for a week now and I’ve barely had a chance to go through all the photos I took. I thought I’d start off small and share a few garments I wore on our trip. The sun and the light were especially spectacular after the dark winter light of the past few months.
Traveling handmade always feels pretty great. Traveling handmade to the Bahamas, well that’s beyond great. It was especially nice to bring out some summer weather pieces at the tail end of our Canadian winter.
Knits are perfect travel pieces. They pack well and are incredibly comfortable. My handmade knit wardrobe still has some catching up to do but this Grainline Studio Lark Tee is a great basic. This is my first Lark and I was able to make it from a ‘scrap’ 1 metre piece given to me by Agnes C. at a recent Sewing Date. I’m all about ‘scraps’ that can be turned into garments. Isn’t this print by Bari J. so lovely? These beautiful white line drawn flowers on blue are so good that I ordered a bolt for the workroom and I hope it gets here soon.
The fit was good and I would even consider going up a size or two for future versions. It sewed together beautifully and quickly on my serger. I use a twin needle for all the hemming on my sewing machine. There will definitely be future versions and hopefully they will get to go to the Bahamas too!
