MADE: Scout Woven Tee

One of my fellow sewists at a local meetup is in love with this pattern (actually several of the sewists from the meetup have made this top and love it!) and so I decided to give it a try as well. It is a loose dartless woven top, which is not typically my first choice because I tend to lean towards more fitted clothes. I was a bit skeptical about it so I decided to use fabric I got at a fabric swap.

Uploaded this to flickr using the flickr app with the mammoth filter.

Pattern: Scout Woven Tee by Grainline Studio
Size:  12
Fabric: floral print cotton lawn/voile from a fabric SWAP
Cost: $6.50 = $6.50 (pattern) + $0.00 (fabric)
What I LoVE:  Simple, easy pattern.
Notes:  Added tiny pointed pocket, which was traced from my Target Boyfriend Tee.

I don't think that this is the most flattering top on me, and I'm not sure I made the best fabric choice.  However that being said, I wear this shirt A LOT... it's super comfortable.  It's been a few months since I finished this project and it's definitely grown on me.  (Thanks, Susan! :))  Overall,  I may make a few tweaks and try it again.

Potential modifications for next time:
  • Take it in a smidge in the back
  • Needs small FBA
  • Use drapier fabric


  1. I have quite a few things in my closet that I'm not quite pleased with, but I wear anyway. After awhile, I forget what it was that I didn't like.

    1. Hehe... I'm the same way and the opposite is true as well. I think I really like something, but then it just doesn't really get worn.

  2. Hey thanks for the link love! I think it looks cute on you, and actually not boxy at all, but I do understand -- we like what we like. :) Maybe rayon challis? Doesn't get much drapier than that! (Did I tell you that I ended up with some of that fabric from a swap too??)

    1. Of course... I need to give credit where it is due! :) I was thinking rayon challis or a rayon jersey even. Yes, you did tell me about that fabric. I remember there was a whole bolt of it. I can't wait to see what yours turns out to be.

  3. Welcome to the scout club! I think we'll need to do a meetup on scout hacks soon. Love the colours on you and I think it looks great though I know you like your things a bit more fitted. Just found your blog through Susan, yay!

    1. We totally need to have a meetup on Scout hacks. Especially with all the versions you've done... if I guessed correctly on who the mysterious Miss LuLu is. :D Thanks for stopping by!
