It has been quite a while since I posted, I have moved house again (hopefully I won’t be moving again for a really long time!) and somewhere between the packing and unpacking my sew-jo has been kind of absent.
I finally unpacked my machines a few weeks ago and set up my sewing space and decided I needed a quick and easy project to get started.The Grainline Studio Hemlock tee is probably my favourite TNT pattern – I have made so many over the past few years, I can whip one up in a few hours and I love to wear a slouchy oversized top at weekends.
I blogged about another striped version earlier this year – here – and this latest one is based on that. The first version had stripes which were printed onto the fabric and it hasn’t worn well, so it was time for a new striped top for the autumn.This fabric is a viscose knit from Fabric Godmother – I ordered this a few months ago so it is sadly out of stock now. As with the previous version I widened the body by a couple of inches to create an oversized tee.I love the way the arrangement of stripes has worked out. I think my sew-jo is feeling a bit better now – hopefully it won’t be as long until I am back with another project… anyone else finding it a bit hard to get going this autumn?
