One Hemlock Styled Three Ways

I downloaded the hemlock pattern months ago. I whipped one up in no time using some extra interlock fabric to test out the fit. It was a definite oversized fit on my frame. I took it in by folding the center/fold line in one inch and it's just enough drape for my liking. This top is also the first garment I made using my serger, which sat unused for three months after I very hesitantly bought it. If you're also intimated by using a serger, let me just say that they're far easier to use than all their spools of thread and threading techniques would lead you to believe. I learned how to use mine by tutorials on youtube and haven't had any problems that weren't quickly resolved.

I made my Hemlock Tee using a hemp/organic cotton blend in a goes-with-everything gray. Additionally, I have a rule about things that enter my closet - it must be something I care pair with at least three things to create three different outfits. Obviously, gray goes well with almost anything so it was an easy choice. I do love versatility and simplicity in my clothing and the Hemlock tee really is both of those things. Can't wait to whip up more!
