Spoonflower Henley

Remember this post with the Spoonflower fabric? Well, here’s what I made with it.

A saddle shoulder henley.

A saddle shoulder is constructed with a piece of fabric that spans the shoulder area on the front and back. It can be similar to a raglan sleeve with the “saddle” cut in one piece with the sleeve, or it can be similar to a yoke, in which it is a separate piece sewn to the front and the back pieces before setting in normal cap sleeves.

I had other plans in mind for this shirt, but it wanted to be a henley, so a henley it is.

As far as a saddle shoulder pattern, well, there’s something in the works. It’s not exactly like this but I think you’ll like it. It’s going to be the last of the Hipster collection I’m doing for Lil Blue Boo.

So I’ll leave you with a parting shot of Tater doing his Gangnam Style dance during our photo shoot. I really need to get him and Bean on video dancing to that song. Are any of your kids crazy about it?

    haha my kids are crazy for Gangnam Style! When my two year old was a baby the big song was We No Speak Americano and we’d sing “bop-bop-Oliviano!” … now we have another baby and we started singing “Oopa Jackson style” but then my 2 year old misheard that and now it’s “Poopoo Jackson style.” We’re classy like that.
