Slouchy Tee and Rooftop Views

Pattern: Tessuti's Mandy Boat Tee
Fabric: 1 1/2 yds rayon? blend
Cost: free from Bay Area Sewists fabric swap

Welcome to the rooftop series, where I discover that my roof has great lighting, a nice view and is perfectly hidden from the public for blogging selfies! You may see all my photos up here from now on...   I'm also done with finals for the semester, got all my credits sorted out to graduate in May, and looking forward to sharing more sewing projects with you during the winter break. I didn't get a ton of sewing done this semester, but I did sneak in a project here and there.

This one is the Tessuti Mandy Boat Tee, a popular pattern featuring an oversized, boxy shape and drop shoulders. I reduced the width slightly (although it is still quite oversized), shortened it (perhaps too much?), narrowed the neck opening, and added sleeve bands for easy sewing. The fabric is a soft knit, possibly rayon blend, that I got at a fabric swap with the Bay Area Sewists. It was originally white, but I threw it in a dark blue dye bath with some other things. Clearly the dye didn't take very well and I ended up with this lavender color. Still works for me though!

Overall this is a very easy, quick sew. The result is definitely very slouchy, but a fun shape to try. My hems could also probably use some work as they're a bit wavy, but I was happy to bang out this quick project. 

Currently I've got a lot Christmas-sewing related projects going on, including a bomber jacket for Mr. Made and my first sock-knitting project. What a joy to be creating again!
