Grainline Studio - Hemlock Tee

Have you all downloaded the free Grainline Hemlock Tee?
I have had it printed off for several months and I finally made time to sew it.  
Dropped shoulders, relaxed fit and it is one size only.

 Here is the size measurement for the one size fits all (from the Grainline website)
A few pattern details for you –
Finished Measurements are Bust – 44.5″ // Hip – 46.5″
The pattern is drafted for use with a serger meaning that all seam allowances are 3/8″
My measurements (for comparison) Bust – 32″ // Hip – 37″ // 5’6″ tall
You’ll need 1.5 yards of fabric 45 – 60″ wide

I didn't want it that oversized and I noticed in some pictures the neckline is quite large. Like this one

My solution?  I drew a line 1/2" parallel from the center front and center back.  This removed 1" from the front and from the back.  I liked the look of this so much better.  Fits in the bust a bit closer and the waist and hips are still oversized.  It is just one of those shirts you can make your own.

My fabric is from Fabric Mart, I think their last big knit sale.  This is a thin cotton knit but works just fine for this style.

I tend to make 3 or 4 items and photograph them all at once.  I had just finished photographing my Vogue Dress and then the rain came again.  So here is my pose just for the rain.

As you can tell by my grass and flowers we have had wonderful rains.  Usually by now my grass is brown but no this year, the yard will look great for wedding day, August 1st!

  4. I just made this up a little while ago as well. It's a magical little pattern. I took out an inch (2" total) out of the front and left the back as it was since I usually have to do a broad back adjustment. It turned out just fine. I really like the fit of yours. I can't wait to try a non-stretch version of this top too.

    1. Thanks for the idea of more in the front and no adjustment in the back. It is sure quick to sew, sometimes you need that quick sew.

    1. I seem to love the stripes, made 2 more after this one from the Kimono tee. The temperature on August 1st is 88 to 90 but by 5 pm, it will be okay and no rain, that is the important part.

  9. I tried commenting on this top several times on my iPhone and iPad to no avail. Reading Carolyns current post about comments, made me more determined to get this to you.

    That said--- This is a top that has gotten under my radar. I like the changes you made, although, I can see a use for the oversized version as well. Thanks for all the wonderful post.

  11. This looks so cute on you! I tried the Hemlock ages ago, but I used a terrible, terrible, super slinky knit and it was a disaster! I should give it another go using your size changes and with a better fabric! I love this on you!
