Yet another Mandy

I reckon that the Tessuti Mandy boat tee would be one of my most-sewn patterns.  I often use it as a palate cleanser before fully immersing myself in the joy that is a weekend at Sewjourn.

I picked up this soft printed knit at Super Cheap Fabrics a day or two before heading away for the weekend. It’s full of colours that I love, and the hand feel is delightful. I used the full length sleeves from the Tessuti Monroe turtleneck pattern.

I often use leftovers to make matching infinity scarves. Length and width is entirely dictated by the size of the scraps! I just sew a long rectangle into a tube along the long edges then join the short edges. Easy peasy!

Construction wise, I think it’s all been said before. I always make sure that I stabilise the neckline and hems with double sided fusible tape before topstitching them down. Otherwise construction is on the overlocker.

And I must share my favourite photos from the weekend – the four of us all wearing Marilla Walker Maya tops. Album title suggestions welcomed!

  1. I have 3 Maya tops in my wardrobe and I think there’s room for more, especially after seeing your sewjourn versions. I have a Mandy cut out waiting for the weekend. Great idea to add the sleeves and the infinity scarf
