I actually finished an item for a sew-along! I'd been eyeing the grainline studio patterns for a while now, so when I saw that there was a sew-along for the scout woven tee, I was excited to give it a try. I don't generally find loose styles very flattering on me (short with a small frame), but I was interested enough in this pattern to try something outside of my comfort zone. I'm glad I did! The floaty style is lovely in this heat!
This is actually a make do and mend type project - I was worried enough about the style suiting me that I thought I would try and make it out of an old mens skirt I had lying around. It is a poly/cotton blend and one of the softest drapey fabrics I've ever worked with. I tend to be a bit of an anti-poly snob, but this fabric is lovely.
Here's a close-up of the print - a very small scale plaid.
|I had to do some creative cutting to have enough fabric, but I actually like the look.|
I used size two on the top, and traced out to 4 on the bottom, other than that no changes!
Just to prove I'm serious about this sewing blogger thing I present a picture of my cat getting in the way.
Thanks for checking out my post!
