Scout Tee

My sister and I went to Thimbles and Thread Quilt shop in Draper, and took a “Scout Tee” shirt class together!  It was so much fun.  We have not done anything together for a long time, so it was great to catch up and visit with each other!

In the class we learned how to sew a woven cotton t-shirt!  I have to admit that we were a little bit skeptical about how it would fit…with no stretch to the fabric.  But they both turned out so different and so cute!scout teeThis picture is at the class we took.  We have not hemmed our shirts yet and we both ended up taking the sides in so that they were a little better fit!scout teeMy sister ended up putting a ruffle on the bottom of hers and it turned out so adorable!  She paired it here with a a matching sweater and she was ready for a night out on the town!

The pattern for this Scout Tee can be found at Grainline Studio.

The length was extended about 4 inches longer than the pattern showed it and I love it!scout teeNext, I paired it with some jean and a Levi vest for a fun casual look.scout teeThen I belted it and added a skirt for a fun dressier look.

It was so fun working with this pattern, that I decided I wanted to make one more…scout teeThe fabric totally changes how it looks.  And again, you can dress it up or down depending on what your day entails!  Now I need to make another shirt and add a ruffle to the bottom or a collar around the neck!

So that is my Scout Tee shirt.  Have you made any clothes for yourself??  This is the first thing that I have made in years! 

Thanks for Visiting!  Have a Happy Weekend!

I am thinking a ruffled one might be in my future! Hope you have a great day!

    1. Vienna, Thank you so much for your kind comment and for teaching the class on the Scout Tee! I love my shirts and can’t wait to make a few more!

  3. Cute shirt. One question: how is it too put on since there is no stretch. Is it because the neckline is lower and sleeves are on loose size. Did it make any difference in putting it one after you took the sides in? Also I am a little larger than 18 do you think it could be made larger?

    1. Gloria, My sister and I were worried about that very same thing and we were very pleasantly surprised at how easy they were to put on, even after taking the sides in! You can make any size that you want to with this pattern. It has multiple sizes on the same pattern so you can alter the top or the bottom to fit your body! That is what I loved about taking the class and learning a little more about pattern alterations.
