OK, so I'm not talking about those kind of Scouts but the Grainline Scout Woven tee ones...
I have wanted to make a Grainline Scout tee in a fabric than drapes (unlike my cotton versions) for a while and the opportunity arose partly due to the fact that I managed to score 3 metres of this lovely (admittedly slightly crazy) abstract viscose in the John Lewis sale. This is before I officially signed up to the Summer Stash Bust 2014. Honest.
After making my original Scout tee in black polka dot cotton I realised the back was a little too full for my liking. Soooo I amended the pattern to have a centre back seam that curves towards the waistline and back out again removing about 2.5 cm from the fullness at the back of the top. It seems to have worked out pretty well and have made a few versions using this adaptation.
Version one - black polka dot cotton
Version two - red polka dot cotton (made during Me-Made-May) - with centre back seam
Version three - b&w print cotton by Kim Schaefer (in John Lewis sale) - with centre back seam
Version four - multi coloured abstract print viscose by Penelope - with centre back seam
The viscose version is by far my favourite out of the four because the drape and fall of the garment is so much more fluid and easier to wear. It also happens to be in a rather fab colourful abstract print which I absolutely love!
I have another 2 metres of this lovely viscose left and I'm contemplating making a matching skirt using the Everyday Skirt by Liesl and Co after spotting Katie's ikat skirt from What Katie Sews.
If I made a skirt to match my new Scout tee I could participate in Ada Spragg's Two-Piece-Set-Acular!
What do you think I should sew with my remaining viscose?
