Grainline studio Hemlock dress
by Biansky Follow

I made a few changes to the original pattern: I shortened the sleeves and made them tighter and obviously I lengthened the body to make it a dress.​

    This is one of my favorite styles right now and my favorite shirt has been reduced to at home only due to wear and tear.  I would love to make another but always seem to buy the wrong fabric.  I'd like it to be a little stretchy so the sleeves stay in place but still hang nice.  What should I look for in the way of fabric.  Thanks so much

    hey Jeanie,

    the Hemlock is such a cool pattern to start sewing with knit fabric! 
    Hm the fabric that I used is actually really stretchy but also heavy. I guess that is how you get it to hang nice on you. But I have no idea what the stretch percentage is. Hope I could help you a bit :)
