A couple of weeks ago I downloaded Grainline Studio’s Scout Woven Tee pattern because I wanted some relatively plain tops which are quick to sew up and I don’t have the confidence to try to sew with jersey just yet.
I cut out the size 2 as that was the closest one to my bust measurement. In the end, I took the side seams in by 1 inch instead of 1/2 inch (I think). I used French seams on the side seams to make it all a bit neater, and zig-zagged all the other seams (just the sleeve seams).
The fabric is something I bought as a remnant from Rolls and Rems on Holloway Road. I say it was a remnant, but there’s about 4 metres and it was £6. I’m not sure exactly what it is, but it’s got a slight stretch and a really nice drape. You will definitely be seeing it again on here!
There isn’t much to say about the construction, it’s really quick to put together – there are only 5 pieces.
As you can see, the tee is a little big across my back (as all things are) so I thought about cutting a smaller size for the back piece, but I’ve already made this twice more and didn’t bother to make the change – it’s not like it’s very fitted, so I figure it’s fine to have quite a lot of ease!
As I said I’ve already made 2 more of these, and I’m sure they won’t be the last! I am definitely a fan of Grainline Studios, so I think I might give a couple of the other patterns a go, like the Archer Shirt or the Moss Skirt.
Excellent top, great photos! The new look is very slick!
the fit looks great on you, cute top!
