Hemlock Tee // Grainline Studio // Grey Bird Print Bamboo

Pattern
Hemlock Tee by Grainline Studio


Fabric
95% Bamboo / 5% Spandex Grey Bird print knit from Fabricana, Spring 2017
230 gsm
60 inches wide


Alterations
Same 16 inches of width added to body of shirt. Read more about my first version here.


New changes for this version -
1/2 inch width removed from whole sleeve
3/8 inch width removed at wrist (tapered in), for a total of 3/4 inch removed from lower wrist
1/2 inch length added to sleeve along lengthen/shorten line
1/2 inch added to neck band length


After wearing, I've realized this shirt could use a little more length in the front so it doesn't pull up at all, but it is definitely wearable as is.

Side note from the future (May 2019) - these shirts make awesome postpartum nursing shirts! Easy to pull on (and up!), and comfy. The bamboo and or bamboo/cotton blends make them so they aren't sweaty to wear.  In hindsight I wish I had made a few more for that first month postpartum.
