Floral & Lace Baseball Tee #MeMadeMay

Floral & Lace Baseball Tee #MeMadeMay

I’ve had to reevaluate my fashion situation since I moved to a farm. Normally I live in dresses come spring and summer. For one thing, dresses are only one thing to put on instead of a shirt and pants. The lazy heifer in me likes not having to match things, and really. Putting on pants is such a nuisance.

But alas, one looks stupid driving a tractor in a dress. And that’s how I spend a lot of my days! So shorts and tops like this floral & lace baseball tee will have to be my friend from now on. Before we go on, you should all know that the camera is adding lots of pounds in these photos. In real life I’m skinny, rich, and blonde.

For my first Me Made May project I went with a simple raglan tee. I’ve used this pattern before and I know it’s perfect. I talked about the pattern itself in this post: Jalie 3245.

I’ve been sewing completely from stash all year. It’s getting harder as I sew through the piles (and piles) of fabric. I own an ungodly amount of striped knits. I need solids and florals to break it up but I’m resisting so far.

The floral fabric is a jersey slub with a nice drape and decent stretch. I normally wear a modesty tank to smooth out the fluff and disquise my belly button dent, but I was in a hurry to take photos and forgot. Slub fabric is usually a bit sheer, and this was no exception. It’s probably fine as long as I stay away from colored bras, but I can’t deal with the paranoia. I’ll be wearing a tank under from now on.

The lace fabric is a 2-way stretch. I have piles of it in a few colors; I sure wish it was a 4 way stretch. The wrists are a wee but tight but I’ll remember next time. Different stitch settings or adding a bit of ease will go a long way. The¬†two fabrics don’t actually match but I’m working with what I have. It’s close enough, right?

I’ve been enjoying sewing for me. You’ll see a lot of basics this month. I have no desire to sew jeans or anything complicated so hopefully it doesn’t get too boring around here.

One day I’d like to sew a perfectly fitting blouse with yoke, cuffs, and collar stand. I know it would take about 3 muslins and lots of adjusting. It will have to wait until I’m in the mood. Do you have a project you really need to work in, but the motivation isnt there?

    Such a pretty tee Amy!! I love the lace sleeves and think it coordinates perfectly with the knit. I think coordinated is better than matchy matchy and provides some contrast which is eye catching. Imam so proud of you for using your stash!!! You have more willpower than anyone I know!!

    Great top! I also have a huge stash of striped knit. I’m making good progress on it- but moving forward I’m going to be more careful with my purchases.
