Scout Woven Tee: The first of many…

Scout Woven Tee:  The first of many…

I’ve just finished my first Scout Woven Tee and I’m very happy camper.


The fabric is a cotton voile purchased from Rathdowne Fabrics at the beginning of my sewing career (about 18 month ago!).  Confession – it came in two colour-ways and I brought several metres of both!


This top is simple, stylish and perfect for me.  It’s fitted through the shoulders and falls into a loose shape below the bust (it hides my mummy tummy).  The sleeves provide great sun protection, which is a necessity for a fair skinned girl enduring a hot Melbourne summer.

I can see this will be the first of many Scout Woven Tees!


The pattern… what can I say?  Well drafted.  A dream to sew.  Brilliant!

I only made one minor change, which was to remove two inches from the length.  I got a little carried away, so the hem has been overlocked, turned and sewn.  My next version will allow for a double folded hem and maybe another 1/2 inch in length.


I thought you all might to admire my flat neckline (I used Grainline Studio’s tutorial) and my georgeous new necklace.  Each link in the necklace has been hand beaded with hundreds of tiny beads!

Now it’s decision time.  Do I continue with my ‘before Christmas’ sewing list, or set my sewing plans aside, and tackle some machine knitting projects?  I think I’ll sleep on it and decide in the morning.
