About the construction process: The patterns for our t-shirts are hand drawn by a highly experienced and specialised pattern cutter. Once the fabric has been laid out on the cutting table, the patterns are carefully positioned and cut out by hand. The fabric pieces are then passed to the machinists who sew them together, starting with the sides together with a care label and then the sleeves. The collars are neatly pressed and sewn into the neckline of the t-shirts and the lavender trim is then stitched to the neckline with our Lavender Hill Clothing label. Finally the finished t-shirt is pressed, packed and ready to be sent out to you.
