Striped T-shirt

Striped Stratchona Henley Striped Stratchona Henley
A quick sewing for my husband. This is Strathcona Henley pattern by Thread Theory in straight size M, made up in striped viscose knit.

I omitted the sleeves and hem band as my husband doesn’t like them. Both hems are simply folded over and topstitched with zigzag stitches. I used to think that zigzag stitches screamed ‘homemade!’, but now I like it. Homemade (in love) is a good thing!

    Great job on finishing your neckband and sleeves. I like a zig-zag stitch. If done properly is can look decorative.

  • I love it!!!!

    Looks very nice! The way you did the zigzag makes it look like it’s an intentional design feature.

    How did you do the neckband?

  • Your husband should be a model!

    Interesting to hear how you did the hems as I am soon to try sewing with knits for the first time. In my opinion homemade, or handmade, is much better than shop bought and I’m happy for my sewing to reflect this. Your zigzagging is very neat! Jen
