Sometimes I immediately know I am going to L-O-V-E a pattern and I felt L-O-V-E as soon as I saw this one in the design phase. I have never been able to walk into a store and buy a shirt like this. Typically, this style doesn’t fit the way my body curves, so I can finally make my own!
When I was debating on my fabric choices, I knew that I wanted a dress length with long sleeves so I could layer it with quilted gray Oakley vest I had recently made. This fabric was delivered recently from Sly Fox Fabrics and I adored it as soon as I saw it on the website. I love the navy and aqua combo. I wanted to highlight the little pops of aqua by making the sleeves and band in that color. My stash filed me this time and I had to make a trip to Joann’s to grab this fabric, but I was happy they had it and matching buttons in store.
The Breckenridge Henley is an easy to wear top, tunic or dress. Meant for knit fabrics, this style will take you through all seasons. The neckline is an unconventional henley style that is easy to sew. No buttonholes required! Three body lengths are included: shirt, tunic and dress. Sew up this versatile style with short sleeves, roll tabbed long sleeve, or cuffed long sleeve.

This dress is so comfortable, just enough fit in the upper half and just enough flare at the hem. I love that is swishes when I walk, but doesn’t blow up in the wind. I finished my dress on Sunday and wore it to work on Monday! It is that good, folks!
As you can see the leaves are dropping here, the rain has been falling for two days and it is cold already. I snapped my pics between the very cold sprinkles. I added the Oakley for warmth and my favorite gray boots. I feel put together in this outfit. I love “layering” seasons!
This pattern includes a tunic and a top length and 3 different style of sleeves so it really will fit all of your needs. I have a tunic to share in a day or two with you. Breaking News – The Henley style neckline is a fake. 🙂 Yep, not a single button hole was made so it is super fast. Tami even shot an amazing video to show you have to achieve this look and it is so easy! You can absolutely do it! You need to do it!
