I recently stumbled across Niina's blog, Middlegray and totally geeked over all her Grainline makes. I knew we had to feature one of her pieces as a Sew & Tell. This silk Lark looks absolutely luxurious and perfectly sewn. I recommend hopping over to her blog after reading this Sew & Tell to check out her other pieces!

Tell us about your project! This was my second Lark tee and therefore I knew the pattern worked very well for me. I had this black knit silk in my stash that I was handed over a couple of months earlier so I decided to try to make something out of it with a familiar pattern. I went down one size, to a size 4, and lengthened the sleeves by 1" in order to use this super-functional and luxurious material as a base layer. As it happened this tee is perfect for cold weather! Definitely one of my best everyday clothing pieces with a budget next to nothing.
