I wanted to make a Hemlock Tee by Grainline Studio for a while and now I finally made it. It's a free pattern you get, when you sign up for the newsletter. It turned out okay, but was a little bit too oversized for my taste. Especially around the sleeves.
Pattern: Hemlock Tee by Grainline Studio (it's free!)
Fabric: blue cotton jersey from my stash
Size made: there is only one size available
Modifications: none. But I will definitely make a few for my next version
I like the lenght of the body and that it's loose fitting. But the next time I'm sewing it I'll take in the sleeves a few inches. There is just too much fabric in that area. Another thing I'm thinking about adjusting is the neckline. It's definitely on the wider side which I don't like that much (you can see in the first photo that my tank top I'm wearing underneath is visible).
Maybe the fabric wasn't the best choice for this pattern. Maybe a lighter fabric would work better. I will definitely sew another Hemlock Tee, but as I mentioned above, I will make the sleeves smaller.
I sewed this one with my regular sewing machine (I have a Bernina 530) and an overlock stitch. It worked really well but I'm thinking about investing in an Overlock machine. It would make it so much easier.
P.S. I totally copied that informative part about the pattern and fabric I used from Fancy Tiger Crafts' blog. I just love to have all important information in plain sight.
