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:

After you have finished sewing the collar, complete the remainder of the tee as per the pattern.
You will then have yourself a cute little polo!


I grabbed these pics at the end of a long modeling session so this is the best I could get from these two goofballs, but you get the idea :)


If you have a go at changing up your ZW Henley Tee, I would love to see, so be sure to grab some pics and hashtag them #threadfaction 


Enjoy the rest of the tour, see you tomorrow
