As soon as Hey June released the Phoenix blouse pattern back in May I knew that I wanted to make one. Boho-style top with 3/4 length bell sleeves? Yes, please.
hinted at gave away that I had made the Hey June Union St. Tee pattern in my last post (where I MADE PANTS!), but since this t-shirt pattern was on my #2018MakeNine list and I made four different versions I figured that it deserved its own post. For those of you who don’t know, the Union St. Tee is a basic t-shirt pattern from Hey June that comes with a range of sleeve lengths and necklines. It’s a looser fitting style and Adriana specifically recommends against using cotton-spandex unless sizing down to make a more fitted tee. So what did I do? Made one out of cotton-spandex. What can I say, I’m a rebel.
The Sloan leggings were on my Make Nine list this year, and the Hudson pants were not officially on the list, but I had them in mind so I listed them as an ‘alternate’:) Continue reading “Activewear or Loungewear?”
It’s that time of year again…
Lane Raglan time, that is! Can you tell that I love this pattern?
There’s not a lot to say about this pattern that I haven’t said already (here and here) – tried n’ true, my friends. I picked up this wonderfully soft heather blue french terry Continue reading “My Newest Lane”
I hacked my favorite t-shirt pattern!
I fell in love with the Lane Raglan pattern a few months back, and after making a few different versions, I started toying with the idea of adding a cowl neck. Sort of a Renfrew-Lane mashup if you will. I came across some wonderfully soft rayon stretch french terry in charcoal grey – perfect for a winter version of the Lane Raglan!
This top is so amazingly soft and cozy, I want to wear it all the time! Continue reading “Lane Raglan Cowl Neck Hack”
After a summer of making Renfrew tees, I was in the market for a new tee shirt pattern. Raglan tee? Yes, please.
Lane #1: Baseball tee
I made my first version as a classic baseball tee using organic cotton jersey.
The orange-ish colored fabric was leftover from one of my Renfrews – a nice stash-busting perk! I just barely squeezed the sleeves and neckband out of my remnant – in fact I had to cut the neckband as two pieces, so it has two seams (one at each shoulder). I sewed this entirely with my regular sewing machine using a ballpoint needle and a twin stretch needle for hemming.
I love the look of the classic baseball tee, especially when it’s Giants colors…
