One of my goals this year is to not buy any new clothes. If I want to add something to my wardrobe I have to make it. I also want to get better in documenting what I'm currently working on (see my queue check posts here) and also what I completed.
In the first quarter of this year I made two garments. Well actually I made three, but the pair of socks I knitted were for a friend. I knitted a Junegrass pullover and sewed (another) Willow Tank. I also adjusted the Hudson pants I made a few years ago.
It's not much that I made in these first four months but that's not the point. Everything I add to my wardrobe is a true labor of love and will be worn for a very long time.
Pattern: Willow Tank by Grainline Studio
Fabric: blue linen from my stash
Size made: 6
Modifications: First I followed this tutorial on grainlinestudio.com to crop the tank and then I lengthen it by 4" again. This way it's not that wide at the hem and it's 1" longer than the original one.
This pattern is one of my favorites. I have now three of these and they are my go to tanks. I will definitely try the dress version one day.
Pattern: Junegrass Pullover by Carrie Bostick Hoge
Wool: Acadia from The Fibre Co. in Cormorant
Size made: 35¾
Modifications: I share all of the modifications I made on my ravelry project page.
Fabric: I found this at our local fabric store a few years ago and don't know more about it.
Size made: 10
Modifications: I shortened these pants a few weeks ago and now they look less like track pants and more like summer pants. You can find the original version here on Instagram.
