Strathcona Tee Sew-Along: Schedule September 22 2015

While we have quite a few sew-alongs and tutorials on our website, there are a few big gaping holes which really need to be filled!  One such hole is a sew-along for the t-shirt version of our Strathcona Henley and T-shirt pattern.  Currently, the only tutorial on our site specifically suited to the Strath is my tutorial on sewing the Henley button placket - extremely useful if you plan on sewing the Henley variation but not so helpful if you are sewing the T-shirt!

In preparation for the sew-along, the Strathcona T-shirt and Henley pattern is currently 25% off!  The tissue pattern is currently only $15.00 while the PDF pattern is only $8.25.  The sale will run until the sew along is over on September 23rd.


 

Here are the aspects I will cover in this sew along - you will notice it will only take three blog posts to complete (it really is that simple to sew a t-shirt):

Blog Post #1 on Sept 16th

  1. Choosing manly t-shirt knits

Blog Post #2 on September 18th

  1. Choosing a stitch style
  2. Cutting out your fabric

Blog Post #3 on September 21st

  1. Sewing the shoulders
  2. Sewing the neckline
  3. Sewing the sleeves and side seams
  4. Sewing the hems

 


 

I hope you will sew along with me!  Please don't feel rushed to find fabric in time - you are welcome to start sewing whenever you are ready.  Any comments and questions added to these sew along posts will be answered by me indefinitely!  Please use #strathtee to share your sewing process and finished tees!
