How have I not posted about my Scout Tees!?! This pattern (by Grainline Studio) has become my tried and true pattern for shirts. I first talked about these tees in my podcast with April Rhodes and have gone a bit crazy over them since then.

Here is my wearable muslin:

Fabric: The fabric is from Art Gallery’s Indian Summer collection by Sarah Watson. Sadly, it is out of print. Despite the fact it is a cotton, the hand of the fabric is really nice and I don’t need to iron it every time I wear it. (Or maybe I should say that I don’t iron it. It might actually need it though!)

Adjustments: I added two inches to the sleeves and extended the armscye the same amount. I slightly graded the addition back into the front and back of the shirt. However, I didn’t realize the sleeves were already gathered so they came out a bit puffy at the top.


Onto version #2:

Fabric: This fabric is from Anna Maria Horner’s Loominous fabric line. Although I believe the fabric is still “in print”, it seems to be very hard to find this particular print. I pre-ordered it from Hawthorne Threads because… well… it’s purple. (Yes, my love for purple runs deep.) I have worn this shirt everywhere and it’s super soft.

Adjustments: I reduced my sleeve and armscye adjustment to 1/2″ and added three inches in length.


 

Why stop at 2!?! Here is my third version:

Fabric: Both are Melody Miller prints. The ladies are from her Ruby Star Polka Dot line with Kokka and the navy is from Cotton and Steel in her Playful line.

Adjustments: I made the same adjustments as my second version with the addition of the colorblocking.


 

I am pretty sure I will make more Scout Tees. They are perfect for everyday wear and a quick sew. It takes more time for me to pick my fabrics then it does to sew the tee together!

  1. Love it, love it, love it! Plural. 😉 Lovely fabric choices. I’m inspired to try the pattern, though as a beginner, I’ll assume they won’t look quite so nice.
