Spring closet- plaid henley shirt

25 Feb

After the baseball henley shirt, I made a second henley shirt for my baby.


For the pattern part, I shortened the sleeve length by 1″, and added 3/8″ to the neck area of the body and sleeve piece so that the neckband would be narrower than the baseball henley shirt.

I used the plaid knits fabric (medium weight cotton jersey) I got from for the body and neckband, and a small piece of cotton print for the front placket (Alexander Henry heath-crosshatch in chocolate).


The placket construction looks more clean than the one in baseball henley, is it?

Speaking of placket constructions, here are a few online links/sources that I learned a lot from them. Check them out if you are interested.
