So many fine details make up the perfect wardrobe piece. It's a wonder I don't have ten of these by now. I made it about two weeks ago, maybe three. I don't even remember. What I do remember is that I have worn it so many times that one things for sure, is that I better hurry and find some more fabric and get a few more completed, before my family calls the fashion police.
Of course there was only a few tweaks I had to make for it to fit me the way I like, and that was the arm circumference. The fabric for future makes need to be very lightweight and breezy for it to feel comfy. It's really no secret, I'm a button-down and t-shirt kinda gal. So if I can get it to feel that comfortable, then it will be in heavy rotation in my closet, which is why I needed help for ideas on styling beyond the regular "t-shirt" wear.
I get a kick out of understanding the history and meaning or background for the things I wear or what I do. For this, I wanted to check out where or what "henley" really is, and this is what I found....
- The men's henley is a "collarless" version of a polo shirt with three "signature" buttons.
- The top button is never buttoned closed... hence the women's version is a little more sexy with the top opened down to resemble a v-neck
- It is usually long sleeve and may be worn as a base layer to a jacket.
