Lemon Ebony T-Shirt

Lemon Ebony T-Shirt

I felt pretty accomplished after updating my blog for three times last month, and yet it’s already mid August! Time really flies… This lemon T-shirt i’m sharing today was done in March. I went back to Japan in April and I needed some half sleeve clothing for the trip (April in Japan can get pretty warm, compared to Canada.)


I used my tried and true T-shirt pattern from Closet Case Patterns: Ebony T-shirt and Dress pattern.

My first one is share here, it was closer to the dress length with 3/4 sleeves. This time, I went with view C which has short raglan sleeves and a cascading hem (longer on the back.)

The fabric is by Art Gallery Fabrics and it’s called “Yuma Lemons”. This print comes in two types of fabric: cotton (I think it’s quilting weight cotton) and knit. This print has been out for a few years now and the cotton one is so hard to find in Canada. Luckily I was able to tracked down some knit on a Canadian online fabric store, Funky Monkey Fabrics.

爽やかなレモン柄が素敵な布は、Art Gallery Fabrics。アメリカの布メーカーで、北米ではかなり人気&規模大きめのメーカーです。最近は輸入布を扱うオンラインショップ等を通じて、日本でも人気のようですね。特にこちらのレモン柄はSNSでもたくさん見かけますし、AGFの代表プリントの一つかもしれません。このレモン柄はYuma Lemonsといってコットンとニットの2種類出ているはずなのですが、カナダではコットンの方をめっきり見つけられません。運よくニットの方を購入できました。

I’m so happy with how it turned out! It’s so cute and so summery! Here are some things on the pattern that I changed:

  • Took off about 3cm on the back hem length (to make a less dramatical cascading hem)

  • Made sleeves smidge wider (about 1-2cm)

  • Lengthened sleeves by 3cm


  • 後ろの丈を3センチほど短くして、前後差を緩めた

  • 袖をほんの少し(1〜2センチ)太くした

  • 袖丈を3センチほど長くした

I wasn’t sure how I would feel about the raglan sleeves until I first tried it on, but I really like it! It’s comfortable and I think it’s pretty flattering too. The neck opening and its shape are also perfect for me!

This has quickly become my warm weather favourite! It’s swingy and is pretty cute to throw on a pair of pants!
