Narrow Lahmans Hemlock Tee

Clothes, Sewing, Vintage fabric februari 11, 2018


I made this top as my warming up pattern for the sewing year. It has been a long pause, so when I found the
Hemlock Tee it felt like a great thing to start with. And it is a free pattern! I have lacked tops lately and though I prefer to sew pants it was necessary to make something else. I made it more narrow than the original to fit my fabric that was a tube of vintage ribbed tricot called Lahmans-trikå here in Sweden. It is still used in Henleys and mens underwear but to be called  Lahman it requires to be knitted on an original knitting machines from the 1920s.
