Another Lark Knit Shirt
Sue Kandziolka gave me this knit fabric last spring. It will go with so many of my clothes, including the soft red knit jacket I made last spring. I used the Grainline Lark Knit shirt pattern and cut out the shirt last June. I then got “summer busy” and didn’t get back to actually making the shirt until last weekend.
I did remember how to use the serger, and it didn’t take long to sew up the shirt. I have set up my Janome 6600 next to the serger and put in a ball point knit needle, so I can just go back and forth without having to change eveything on my big Janome 8900. (The Janome 6600 is an excellent workhorse of a machine. I’ve had mine for 15 years now and still love it.). I have a sweat shop organized for winter sewing!
The Lark is very long, so tucks in beautifully. Or, hangs out beautifully.
I put on the shirt right away—it’s so soft.
Thanks Sue K. For this gift.
On to the next!
