A successful Hemlock

I made another Hemlock tee! OK, I actually made this ages ago… I’m catching up slowly I promise!Photo 04-12-2016, 15 17 40

This second version was far more successful than the first and is yet to fall apart, unlike my first stripey attempt! This is a quick post really as I made it up in exactly the same way as last time, with no adjustments to the pattern. This time the biggest difference was the quality of the fabric I used.

I’d picked up this plain black cotton jersey from Goldhawk Road last year with all intentions to make it into a skirt (the Lindy petal skirt), but as I didn’t have a huge wealth of experience sewing with stretch fabrics, I’d been ignPhoto 04-12-2016, 15 18 23.jpgoring it in my stash. However, since my first Hemlock had come together so nicely and turned out so well (before it started to disintegrate anyway) I was chomping at the bit to have another go and end up with something wearable! Thankfully, the fabric you can get on Goldhawk Road is normally pretty good quality so I can always rely on it!

I don’t really have anything else to add haha! This is a really great t-shirt pattern, but if anyone has any good pattern recommendations please let me know. I have recently bought the Grainline Studio Lark tee pattern and I also have a t-shirt pattern from La Maison Victor, but I am open to all tips and suggestions!

    I love the satisfaction of sewing wardrobe staples. I’ve not tried this pattern, I have too many t-shirt patterns to justify another one!
