April showers bring bad hair days for curly girls like me! When the rain finally paused and I found myself with a moment to take pics of my new Hemlock Tee, the frizz mop was just not behaving. It was pretty much bee-hiving. Ha! Good one, Caroline!
So, today’s styling is brought to you by rain and baseball. Which works since we are at the baseball field about 3 days a week for my big boy, Jet. He’s a Yankee this year. (Sorry Bops and Gramma, we don’t get to choose!)
This sweater knit comes from Girl Charlee. I found it in the bargain lots section, which sells slightly imperfect yardage for super cheap. I bought 3 yards of it and didn’t find a single flaw! I must have bought most of it, because it is now only offered in that half-yard section.
After all these years, I just now figured out how to use my camera remote. Stoked!
Also, pretty stoked about my stripe matching skills!
About the Hemlock pattern, I really like it! It’s free from Grainline Studio and kind of a one-size-fits-all guideline pattern. I chose a length I liked, and kept the other dimensions as-is. I did add my own band at the bottom, just to bring the width in a little bit and to polish it all up.
The dog is my shadow. All day long.
You won’t be seeing the second Hemlock I made, a short sleeve version with a stretchy tissue knit. I ruined it with my new iron- a $10 yard sale score Rowenta. I’m so bummed! I cut the pattern to be more narrow, and I added a half inch to the neckline. It came out great, so I’ll be trying it again soon. I guess should’ve paid attention to the heat settings which never really mattered with my old piece of junk iron. The fabric melted as soon as the iron touched it. #dammit #madeinGermany
