I’m sewing with Grainline patterns!!
This time, it’s Jen’s latest, the Hemlock Tee. And it’s FREE!!
This look is way more fall than I think I’m ready for, but I’m sure I’ll be wishing for yesterday’s mild temps, today.
I love a loose, slouchy tee!! But, I think making this drives home how much I prefer them with a hi-lo hem. I felt a little frumpy with the tee hanging down, loose. with it tucked in a bit, I felt a lot more comfortable. And it looks much better, too.
I already have Hemlock Tee II cut out. In the cream version of this fabric. I got them both at Mood. At $12 a yard and 72 inches wide, my yard and a half of each leaves me with enough for at least one more top. Probably two. I’d buy this again in a heartbeat!! It sews up like a dream and is not nearly as sheer as I thought it would be. Zipping this together on my serger was super easy as it didn’t roll much at all.
The only mod I made to this perfect (one size) pattern was to lengthen the sleeves a teeny bit. About an inch and a half. I will very likely wear them pushed up, like so. But full length is great for those freezing days ahead.
Anyway!! Visit Grainline. Print out Hemlock. Sew it up. Put it on. Pose with a skeletal kitty cat.
