{Telluride Henley} by Terra's Treasures

It's been a while since I have written a review. It's definitely not for lack of product, that's for sure....whew! I have been super busy with Capsule Wardrobes and testing, I just haven't had the time to write up review for everything. I have a running list though, so I will be working on those over the coming weeks!

I want to start with the most recent release. Terra's Treasures just released her Telluride Top, and in case you haven't jumped on the Henley train you NEED to! #sewallthehenleys

I chose to make the classic henley in tunic length because I like to live on the edge ;) The placket was actually much easier than I imagined it to be and went together very quickly. I ended up having to just sew the buttons on top over the placket because my machine was giving me fits trying to sew a buttonhole, but hopefully next time will be better. The instructions were very clear and straightforward for construction.

My fabric choice was a bit boring, but again, I will be using it for layering. Originally was going for the long sleeve so that I could wear all winter and layer, but I transcribed the yardage wrong onto my shopping list, so I had to go for the short sleeve. Now I can wear it all year long!!!!


I plan to make at least a few more of these, including a hoodie version, because it just looks like so much fun. The design is so unique! And even the scoop neck would make such an awesome layering tee. Yes, the options...they really make such great patterns that yield so many different looks.

Which option is your favorite?

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope that you will stay tuned!
