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
- Choosing manly t-shirt knits
Blog Post #2 on September 18th
- Choosing a stitch style
- Cutting out your fabric
Blog Post #3 on September 21st
- Sewing the shoulders
- Sewing the neckline
- Sewing the sleeves and side seams
- 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!
