Yesterday I made two more Hemlock tees.
Even though they've been on my list for a while, I hadn't really planned to make them until the weather warmed up a bit. But since my serger was already threaded with green from making the Renfrew the other day, I decided to just go ahead with the green one. And then I figured that as long as I had the pattern out and ironed, I may as well make the turquoise one! So . . . two new t-shirts!
Don't ask my why I love this very oversized style so much, and yet the Lola was not for me! What can I say? I'm an enigma! Actually, it probably has more to do with the balancing effect of wearing an oversized top with skinny jeans.
Here's a little life tip: when Life (or in this case, Girl Charlee) hands you lemons (or in this case, fabric too thin and drapey to make the green and white striped dress you'd planned on) - make a Hemlock! I made these two in the span of about 3 hours.
I'm particularly pleased with the turquoise one. I got this 1-yard remnant of burnout tissue knit at Vogue right before the Stash Diet started for $2.99. The color is so gorgeous - these pictures don't do it justice. It's like a clear summer sky. I had to channel my inner Mad Housewife to get this big tee out of one yard, but I managed it! So proud!
And I wanted to get these posted in time for the February Stash Diet Round-Up, which Andrea will be hosting this month. If you're taking part in the Diet and haven't yet sent in your photos and links to her, go over and do that before Friday!
