Color Blocked Hemlock

Color Blocked Hemlock 2Today you’ll be surprised to learn (not really) that I have hacked the Hemlock Tee to create a color blocked variation. My love of color blocking may only be rivaled by my love of ruffles (ruffle 1, ruffle 2, ruffle 3, ruffle 4, ruffle 5, okay you probably get the point). I adore this technique because it is both current and so simple. Plus there really is no better way to use up small and awkward scraps in your fabric stash. What’s not to love?

For today’s hack I used fabric scraps from my quilted Rigel Bomber to add contrast at the sleeves and shoulder seams. The body of my top is an ice grey Ponte de Roma knit. Despite being a very casual top the quilted details make me feel more pulled together than I do wearing a simple solid tee.

Tomorrow I’ll share how I slashed the Hemlock Tee to make this variation. If you’ve never tried color blocking before the steps I used to make this top are very easy to apply to any pattern you choose. When it comes to color blocking the world’s your oyster.

Happy Sewing!

Supplies: Hemlock Tee Pattern (it’s free!) ,  Grey Quilted Knit scraps, 1 yard Ice Grey Ponte de Roma, Collin’s Wash Away Wonder Tape,  Twin Stretch Needle, thread. Styling: Perforated Leather Vans Slip-OnBrooke Lucky Jeans.
