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.

Union St. Tee Madness
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.
Activewear or Loungewear?
Where do you fall on the activewear vs loungewear debate? Which do you prefer to sew? To wear? I made one of each – Sloan Leggings for exercising and Hudson Pants for lounging!
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?”
My Newest Lane
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”
Lane Raglan Cowl Neck Hack
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”
My new favorite tee: Lane Raglan
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…
