If you’ve never used a Hey June pattern before the tutorials are always so clear and really some of the best I’ve ever used. This pattern was no exception.
The pattern is another basic dolman- long sleeves, curved hem and a facing neckline.
I’m usually not a fan of facings on a tee but this one really works well.
The long sleeve piece hits me 3″ above my elbow.
I also really like the curve of the underarm- not too wide.
I used this rayon spandex knit from Joann’s. Honestly, it’s a little wild for me but when I saw the new tie dye selection I was mesmerized. So cool but a little out there for me.
I’ve got a pair of Sloan Leggings that will go with this that I’ll share with you soon. I feel like I can be a little bit crazier with my workout clothes than I can with my everyday wardrobe so I think this tee will fit in perfectly there.
I’ve left this unhemmed for now. I’m debating adding a band to keep it in place if I’m wearing it primarily to workout in. I think this pattern, while basic, leads itself to easy hacks like bands, short sleeves, adding a neckband instead of facing, etc.
This pattern has a fun side inset option too that I didn’t use. The colorblocking options with that are so cool and flattering.
This pattern can be made up in a variety of knits like my slinky rayon version or a cozy french terry top. Adrianna has done it again- another winning pattern to add to my Hey June wardrobe. She has generously offered 25% the Aurora pattern until April 28th with the code ‘AuroraLove’. Hurry on over and pick up your copy!
