Welcome to my intro post for the 2021 Zero Waste Mini Collection Blog Tour.
The tour starts today, and goes through till the 6th of July, we have a fantastic line up for the tour with a range of gorgeous makes and giveaways. Check out the lineup:
The entire site is on sale for 30% OFF for the duration of the tour, so if you see something you like make sure you grab it before the sale ends on Tuesday.
As per usual though, I can't help but get in on the action and will be dropping in each day of the tour with hacks for the patterns in the collection.
Todays hack is adding a collar to the ZW Henley Tee (making it a polo I guess).
This is a super simple hack and give a whole different look to the pattern.
This is how to get this look:
Cut all your pieces as per the Zero Waste Henley Tee pattern except the neckline binding piece. Cut a collar piece the same length as the pattern piece given for the neckline binding but cut it 12cm (4 3/4") wide.
Cut a piece of lightweight fusible interfacing the same size as the collar piece and fuse it to the wrong side of the collar piece.
Sew up the pattern in exactly the same way as written in the pattern until you get to the section sewing the neckline binding, in place of this section, sew the collar as shown below:
