Summer Grainline Linden Tees

Oops, I did it again. I’ve gone and made two more Grainline Lindens!

These are my 5th and 6th Lindens and the 2nd and 3rd which are short-sleeved. (See my first here, second and third here, and fourth here.) What can I say, it’s a great pattern!

In between obtaining new fabrics every so often, I frantically try to sew from my old stash. As I’ve said before, the Linden is a great pattern to mix and match fabrics while stash-busting those smaller pieces.

First up is this cool gradient fabric I got from GirlCharlee.com. I went crazy and bought about 5 yards of this fabric, so expect to see more pieces from this in the future! I got the inspiration for this shirt from this pin on Pinterest.

The fabric is a mid-weight jersey but it’s pretty warm for Tucson summers. This will be perfect for fall/winter here paired with my Ginger skinny jeans and boots.

Next is my rocker Linden with more fabric from GirlCharlee.com. I used the black to make my Dress of All Things Rock and had enough to mix and match with the same fabric in white.

This one is drapier and super comfortable. I love how the Linden gives you breathing room, especially in the armpit, so you can stay cool and breezy when the temps are high.

The only tweak I made to the pattern was to add 1 1/4 inches at the lengthen/shorten line. Other than that, this is a straight size 6.

I can’t say enough good things about this pattern – it’s fast and easy to sew, great for scraps, different yet not too out-there, etc.

I think I may stop at 6 Lindens for now. I’ve since found a new Grainline TNT top that I’ll be focusing my cloning attention on… I’ll share in a future Cali & Co. post!

Stay cool and rock on!

    1. Thanks and they are! I wore the cross one on the plane home yesterday and I kept thinking how comfortable I was and how many more of these I need!

      I am with you on this heat thing! So ready for fall (well, I guess it’s really winter for us…). I’m ready for boot weather 🙂
