Grainline Studio | Hemlock Tee Pattern [it's free]

Hey guys, I’ve got a little summer treat for you. It’s a free pattern for all Grainline Studio Newsletter Subscribers! We all know I’m obsessed with boxy tops and from what I’ve seen on my Instagram, you guys are too, so now we have the Hemlock Tee!

Grainline Studio | Hemlock Tee Pattern [it's free]

This tee is a little bit different than the regular patterns you can purchase in my shop. It’s a one size pattern, meaning it’s not graded. The pattern includes illustrated instructions, and both a Print at Home and US / A0 copy shop pattern page. We also have a step-by-step photo tutorial here for those who prefer photos.

A few pattern details for you –
Finished Measurements are Bust – 44.5″ // Hip – 46.5″
The pattern is drafted for use with a serger meaning that all seam allowances are 1/4″
My measurements (for comparison) Bust – 32″ // Hip – 37″ // 5’6″ tall

The beautiful Japanese tissue knits I used here were provided to me by Britex.
You can find them here: stripe // neon // charcoal

  2. Mai says:

    Oh, what a treat! I’ve just this minute bought the Moss Mini and Maritime Shorts from Etsy, thank you so much for the freebie Jen! Mai xx

  3. Maddie says:

    I smell another hit summer pattern! I love the shape of it as I am a boxy top type of girl.

  4. Erin says:

    Oooh! I’m so excited about this! Thank you so much!

  5. yoshimi says:

    Thank you so much for your very generous offer! The red/white stripy one looks too cute.

  6. Gjeometry says:

    Fabulous! I love your colour blocked one. Thanks for the free pattern!

  7. Sarah says:

    Thanks, Jen! Your neon one is awesome!

  8. Jen says:

    I love it! I need to work up the guts to actually sew something.

  9. mary says:

    WOW! thank you! Love your versions!

  10. Nicole says:

    Awesome! Thanks for sharing this 🙂 Love the colour block version

  11. Kelly says:

    Yay!!! We have almost the exact same measurements, no wonder your patterns fit me so well 🙂 I am excited to make some of these, thanks for the freebie!

  12. Carolyn says:

    Aw thanks Jen! That’s super nice of you. I’m really loving both your versions. Gotta get my hands on some stripy knits.

  13. Tasha says:

    ahhhh I’m so excited! I’m 8 months pregnant right now, and I’ve only started getting back into sewing in the past couple months. I am so anxious to sew for myself! Thank you!

  14. Karin says:

    Thank you! Awesome, super great top!

  15. Wanett says:

    DUUUUUUUUUUUDE!!! You KNOW I’m all up into slouchy tees ;o)

  16. Oh yes. You’re the best. You know that right?!

  17. carlalissa says:

    Love it! Thank you.

  18. Tiffany says:

    I love Britex. They are bit expensive but their fabrics are amazing, ooh and the selection. great fabric choices.

  19. Elena says:

    Love this! The red striped tee has a very marimekko vibe.

  20. Iryna says:

    Yey! It feels like Christmas in summer lol!

  21. kristin says:

    Ooooh this looks awesome for fall! Thanks, Jen!! Love the fabrics you chose.

  22. katie says:

    I love the drop shoulders! Thanks for this!

  23. shivani says:

    oh wow thank you so much for the (amazing) freebie! I’m yet to tackle knits properly, so I think this will be perfect for that! I love this boxy style – thanks again!

  24. OMG! thank you for this! i love the stuff you makeeee!

  25. ZoSews says:

    You’re awesome! I love this top. Red stripes are rad.

  26. This looks great, thanks so much for making this available! Also totally something I’ve been wanting to sew over the last few weeks, in stripes as well. Thank you universe/Jen!

  27. ThreadTime says:

    I love the striped version. Looks so comfy. Thanks for the free pattern. You are too sweet. And thanks for all the measurement details! That helps so much in determining if it will work for other body sizes, yet I don’t see that very often. Kudos to you!

  28. CG says:

    Hurrah! Thank you Jen! This has just jumped into my queue of ‘to makes’… I have a charity shop ‘Farhi’ t-shirt with cut on, almost kimono-like sleeves, very much like the pattern and it is just about the most comfy top I own.

    Although Hemlock will have line up behind my current pressing ‘*need to make second version of this pattern*’ compulsion which leads to *another* Scout Tee and *another* Moss skirt being up ahead of it! Such a compulsion that I find myself trying to squeeze the skirt out of the rems of a dress I just finished for a friends wedding (loud and floral on a teal lawn – oh yea!).

  29. mariegardeski says:

    oooh, it’s great! thanks so much for the free pattern!

  30. -Z says:

    This is so great! I love the simple basic shape…it’s going to be so fun to play around with (different sleeves, fabrics, etc.). Thanks so much!

  31. susan says:

    That is very kind of you to offer this free pattern! Thank you and I can’t wait to make a version of it.

  32. Eleyna says:

    Thank you so much for the pattern 🙂 yay!

    Could you make this on a regular machine? Or just a serger? Thanks!

  35. emily marie says:

    Thanks, Jen! Looks super comfy and wearable (as always). Also, sweet high-tops!

  36. lisa g says:

    sweet! i’ve been thinking of slouchy tees for fall… this will be perfect!

    I love love the name HEMLOCK …
    Love the red/white top …

  40. nicki says:

    Ooh thanks Jen!

  41. meghan says:

    you’re tempting me to get back to the ole sewing machine – this top is great!

  42. blancapate says:

    Love this top!! And I love that we’re almost the same measurements, so I know it’ll fit like it’s supposed to. 🙂 Question – do you think it would work well in a regular knit, also? Like a lightweight bamboo knit? Just wanted to see what you think – I don’t have as much experience with knits and there are some gorgeous bamboo knits out there!! Thanks for the freebie – such a nice surprise!!

    Hello there, I am trying to download the pattern and I get a big Pin It on hover thing and have no access to the direct link. Is there another link I can download directly from? Thanks.

  80. Rixtje says:

    I can not click on the download link, when I want to I only can pin that image… Can you please send me the pattern or tell me where I can find the correct download link?

  81. Is the pattern no longer available? When I attempt to click on the link it only gives me the option to “pin” the link image in pinterest.
