Blue Linden Sweatshirt

by Tonya

I made another garment using a Grainline Studios pattern. This time it's the Linden sweatshirt in a smoky blue french terry. 

I made a sweatshirt in junior high, so I knew I could do it. I was still pleasantly surprised at how quickly and smoothly this went together. I think I spent less than three hours cutting and sewing. I didn't have to re-do anything or search for a tutorial to learn a new technique. It was so satisfying!

I graded out the hem to the next size up, but I don't think I needed to. For my next one, I'll just try a straight size 12. I already have the fabric for it (olive green french terry). Now I just have to find a couple hours since it should go together even quicker than this one did. 

Here's a link to the pattern, in case you don't already have it and you need it. :)

Hemlock Tee in Splatter Print

by Tonya

I made my first Hemlock tee, using the pattern from Grainline Studios. I used a drapey jersey, and I made it a bit longer than the original pattern so it covers my butt and I can wear it with leggings. 

I'm so glad that I finally made this! It's a super easy, quick shirt to make. I can imagine whipping several more in different lengths and different fabrics. The pattern is free if you sign up for the Grainline mailing list (which is just a newsletter about sewing and patterns - nothing annoying at all). 

Hooray for these easy-to-sew clothes that are so wearable!
