Hickory & Spice Henley


Basics don’t need to be boring! Perfect for both girls and boys, the Hickory & Spice Henley is a great wardrobe builder and year-round staple with its three sleeve lengths (short, elbow, and long) and two hem options (ruffle and standard). The shoulder color blocking and henley placket, as well as the optional ruffle hem, add special details to bring you back again and again.

The Hickory & Spice Henley is part of Issue 18 of One Thimble, the Australian digital sewing magazine. You can purchase the entire magazine here (affiliate link).

This pattern allows you to save time with trim-less assembly. You also save ink with layers, which allow you to print only your own size. Download also includes an A0 file, if you would like to print at a copy shop.
