Buy the Men’s Strathcona Henley sewing pattern from Thread Theory. This modern, slim-fitting T-shirt pattern is a wardrobe staple that can be sewn up with a crew neck or a henley placket and long or short sleeves. It would suit both fine or medium weight knits to create either a shirt or light sweater. The sleeves and hem can be turned and hemmed or finished with bands (a great option for beginner sewists!). The instructions for sewing with knits are thorough and include finishing suggestions, step-by-step illustrations and both beginner and intermediate sewing options.

This sewing pattern is available to buy in the following formats:

– PAPER (next working day dispatch on orders and FREE UK delivery over £50)

– PDF (available to download immediately after purchase). What is a PDF?

Suggested fabrics:

Variation 1 (henley): Light to medium weight knit fabrics or some light stretch wovens. Easier to sew: more stable knits such as wool blends, stretch woven athletic materials, thick T-shirt knits. More challenging to sew: ribbed knits, thin T-shirt knits, knit athletic materials. For beginners, use a woven contrast fabric (something with no stretch) for the placket.

Variation 2 (T-shirt): Light to medium weight knit fabrics. Easier to sew: thick (and more stable) T-shirt knits. More challenging to sew: ribbed knits, thin T-shirt knits, knit athletic materials.
