Happy Thursday, Friends! Today I'm sharing this striped Hemlock Tee that I made a while back. The Hemlock Tee is a free pattern that you get as a subscriber to the Grainline Studio newsletter. Its one size so make sure that you check measurements :)
I really love the drop shoulder of this pattern and the bracelet (at least one me) length sleeves. Since we live in California its really perfect for the mild fall weather we get here. I used this striped knit that I got in Los Angeles at the Michael Levine loft. It was the first time I had ever done any fabric shopping in the fashion district and its a little bit overwhelming! In the loft you basically dig through giant bins of fabric that is leftovers from the fashion industry and pay by the pound.
Anyway, the tee sews up super quickly and is comfortable and fashionable. I think its a great transitional piece and as it gets colder you could easily layer it with a cardigan.
Hi friends!! Welcome to my new site!! Its taking a little getting used to using this new format for blog posts so bear with me. Today I wanted to share this Seneca skirt by Seamwork magazine. If you aren't familiar with Seamwork, its a wonderful online magazine. For $7 a month you get 2 credits that you can use towards the patterns. They are all super fashionable and on trend AND the best part is most sew up in 3 hours or less!! Ok back to the pattern. I actually made this skirt last summer but never really wore it and kind of forgot about it.
I rediscovered it while cleaning out my closet and I am so glad that I did!! I think I used either a Robert Kaufman laguna jersey or an Art Gallery jersey to sew this up. As the pattern had promised it was a super quick sew!
It of course has pockets!! It also features godet panel at the side seams which really elevates the style in my opinion. Oh and its comfortable (secret pajamas)!!
My top is from Free People from last year I think and my clogs are Swedish Hasbeens.
