The perks of being married to a sewing instructor.

DIY men's t-shirt-6

Back in April, my sewing friend, Nicole (proprietress of The Spool Sewing Studio) was on a sewing spree which included some fresh Strathcona Tees for her husband, Scott.  Scott graciously agreed to model my favorite of the selection so that I could have a small backlog of garments to show you for a busy week just like this one (we are renovating and moving the Thread Theory studio into our new home).

So, without further ado, here is Scott’s charcoal Strathcona T-shirt:

The neckline is finished with a self fabric band and the hems are finished with a twin needle.  The sleeves have been shortened very slightly to suit Scott’s preferred length and the hem has been left at full length to suit his long torso.  He loves the length of the Strath since he often struggles with the fit of boxy, short store bought tees.

Nicole, always an enthusiastic ‘pusher’ of the Thread Theory brand, stitched our garment tag to the hem so that she (and Scott) can continue to spread the word about sewing menswear.  Isn’t it great to have friends who operate voluntarily as a marketing team?!  Thanks Scott and Nicole!

By the way, the Strathcona Henley pattern is currently sold out in its paper format!  It is still available as a PDF though.  Matt and I are working on getting some quotes to reprint it.  We hope it will be available in the shop once more by the end of the summer (if the quotes are affordable!).

  1. That t-shirt looks great! Now I’m extra glad I snagged a print copy last year. I made the Henley version, and it looks so good on my husband. It’s a great pattern!

  2. Love Matt’s Tee – that gray knit is another nice hue. Is it the same fabric as the blue I ordered from you? I just love that fabric 🙂
