Thread Theory

Strathcona Henley Pattern - Thread Theory

This modern, slim-fitting t-shirt pattern is a wardrobe staple that can be sewn up with a crew-neck or a 1” henley placket and long or short sleeves. It would suit both fine or medium weight knits to create either a shirt or light sweater. The sleeves and hem can be turned and hemmed or finished with bands (a great option for beginner sewers!). Instructions for sewing with knits are thorough and include finishing suggestions, step-by-step illustrations and both beginner or intermediate sewing options. This pattern, as part of the Parkland Casual Collection, is a modern slim-fitting design with athletic sizing. It is a classic garment that lends itself to creating the perfect casual, hand-made wardrobe for an active lifestyle.

Paper Sewing Pattern Includes: 
1) A tissue copy of the pattern in sizes XS to XL 
2) A 16 page staple bound illustrated instruction booklet (lays flat while sewing!) 
3) An embroidered Thread Theory garment tag 
4) A chip board pattern folder with string closure - simple to use and sturdy enough to store your patterns for years to come


Recommended Fabric

Variation 1: Henley - Light to medium weight knit fabrics or some light stretch wovens

Easier to sew: More stable knits such as wool blends, stretch woven athletic materials, thick t-shirt knits.

More challenging to sew: Ribbed knits, thin t-shirt knits, knit athletic materials.

For beginners: Use a woven contrast fabric (something with no stretch) for the placket. 

Notions: Fusible interfacing (1" x 5"), three 15-18mm (1/2") buttons (easier to sew: use three snaps instead of buttons).

Variation 2: T-shirt - Light to medium weight knit fabrics

Easier to sew: Thick (and more stable) t-shirt knits.

More challenging to sew: Ribbed knits, thin t-shirt knits, knit athletic materials.
