Hey guys! Let’s talk more Hey June! Today it’s the Union St Tee.
The Union St Tee is Hey June’s newest release. It’s a women’s tee pattern with two neckline options and four sleeve lengths. Now, I’ve sewn a few tee shirts for myself over the past couple of years. This pattern is the best.
My favorite tees ever are from Target, the Mossimo boyfriend tees. This Union St Tee fits just like them. I may have squeeled just a little when I put my first Union on, after sewing, I was so excited. It’s the classic perfect tee shirt. The length is perfect, the neckline is some sort of fabulousness, and the fit is just right. I followed the size chart,which goes off of bust and hip measurments, to get my size. The knit I used is a mystery. I have no idea where I got it. Maybe Jo-Ann in the red tag? But it’s got a fun large floral print to it, with kind of a retro feel.
As soon as I finished my first Union St., I started cutting out a second. This one is out of a funky cupid-print waffle knit from Girl Charlee.
Now, let’s discuss the necklines here. The instructions walk you through things completely step by step, which is especially helpful with the V-neck. The results are fabulous. These are some of the best necklines I’ve ever sewn, and they were so easy!
Ivy makes this face, we call it “The Face”. It cracks me up. And it turns out I look like a frog when I try to make it. But how cute is my shirt?!
That picture on the far left, that’s a moth flying across the lens. Our backyard has been swarming with them. It’s kind of insane. Felt the need to explain the blur on my pants. Carry on.
