A couple Scout Tees

So I might just be the last sewist to make a Scout Tee by Grainline Studio. I have seen them everywhere. I actually made two.

This one is from a lovely rayon from Heather Bailey’s line Momentum with Free Spirit Fabrics.

And this one is a quilters weight cotton from Art Gallery Fabrics. It’s from Pat Bravo’s new line, Artisan.

(We carry both at the Shop)

I have found that once I make something I want to be done with it. I want to file away my pattern on start on the next thing. Occasionally I will return, months, maybe years later to make another one, but generally I don’t. I knew that I wanted two of these so I made them simultaneously, assembly line style. (And honestly, I do want another one to wear, because it fits so well, I just don’t want to be the one to make it 😁…I want to do something new!)

I really love the fit. And I didn’t have to alter the pattern at all, which is rare for me.

I also learned that I don’t know what to do with my arms when I’m being photographed. So…uh…hand on hip. Always.

Well except for in this pic. Where I’m being goofy with my E man.

Yesterday I wore the rayon and today I will be wearing the cotton. And I might just suck it up and make one more with double gauze.

Do you like to make the same thing again and again? Or are you “one and done” like me?

Thanks for stopping by!

      1. I worry about the fit though – all of the Scout tees I have seen have been on lovely slim figures like yours, whereas I’m a little on the heavy side right now and I don’t want it to look like and sack :/ was it easy to put together??


      2. So easy! And I’m not so slim right now, but the way it falls away from my…ahem…muffin top, is super flattering. I am very pear shaped and usually have to alter patterns (I leave the top alone to fit my narrow shoulders and then graduate out about two sizes for my midsection and hips) but I didn’t have to alter this pattern at all.


  1. These look great, Sarah! I’m glad to know that this pattern doesn’t have to be altered for a petite person. Maybe I will try one.
