Merino Strathcona Henleys
A while ago, both Courteney and I visited The Fabric Store when they had their end of season sale. We were lucky enough to buy merino at from memory 40% off. To say we didn't hold back would be somewhat of an understatement and Courteney in particular took her merino purchases to the next level. In New Zealand our winters are cold. Well, by southern hemisphere standards anyway. Courteney is a student so heating her rented student house is a luxury she and her flatmates try to avoid where possible. This all means that warm clothing is quite the necessity in winter and what better way than merino to stay warm.
I had stocked up last year when Thread Theory had a discount pattern sale and bought most of their patterns in pdf format. It was months before I even printed them out let alone thought about making any up. When I showed Courteney the Strathcona Henley, she didn't take much convincing to give it a try. Both of us liked the button front and a go to tee pattern is a worthwhile investment on any level.
Callum was next on her project list but the finished tee did not match his styling requirements so Joel put his hand up and collared that one as well. It is a little on the large size but he assures us that oversize is in. While not a fan of the extra long tees some teen males wear, at least it will fit him for a while.
