Khadi Hemlock

The Grainline Hemlock pattern has been a great base for both knit and woven tops. This is the second time I’ve used this kimono sleeve variation with a woven fabric – the first was with a kick ass Nani Iro double gauze.

The fabric is a hand-woven khadi from A Verb for Keeping Warm in Oakland. It’s lightweight with a really interesting texture. I added a little pleat to the sleeves which is especially fun with the stripes.

    Oh, wow, that fabric is gorgeous! You know, I live in Oakland but have not been to a Verb for Keeping Warm (I usually shop at Stone Mountain or Piedmont Fabrics). But that is incredible … might just have to jet over there … And this top looks great in a woven!! I’m inspired!

      Thanks! Verb isn’t cheap (!!) but they always some unique and inspiring fabric. Definitely worth a trip. Plus excellent coffee next door if you like coffee.
