Tutorial: Faux Henley Tee

By ari - January 21, 2012

I have a stack of tees I need to reconstruct and resize for my little Monster, shirts I've bought from the op-shop or shirts that Tim doesn't wear. I really need to get cracking on them because he's so tall and skinny shop-bought things don't fit him so good anymore, not to mention I'm trying really hard to have most of his wardrobe handmade. Instead of just straight resizes, I decided to mix things up a little.

I made this Superman tee first, from one of Tim's shirts. I loved how it worked out so I made another.

This Blink 182 one.

And then I decided I would make another and make a tutorial for you!

I'd never really heard of 'Henley' style tees until I started blogging. I guess it's an American thing? I always thought of them as collar-less polo shirts, or undershirts that looked awesome as regular shirts. Haha.

Download the pdf here! If you make one, please add it to the Flickr pool!

  5. This Mens Shirts Store is of surprising quality in the material and stitching. It is comfortable and fits great. Maintains it's deep black color after machine washings.
