Inside Scout

I am generally a very casually dressed person. Like tshirt and jeans pretty much 99% of the time. However, I recently had occasion to require something a little smarter, but didn’t want to be uncomfortable in super smarts, as that just isn’t me.

I got a nice selection of fabric from the recent Bay Area Sewists fabric swap, including some rayon in this cute print:


I think the little guy who looks like he is wearing a red beanie is my favourite.

I had just enough to revisit my TNT tee pattern, the Grainline Studio Scout Tee, and the change in fabric  to the drapier rayon I think made it a little smarter. Being rayon, I decided to finish the inside seams with french seams, bias around the neckline (not my best work, the drapey fabric was prone to going a little askew), and double folded hems.


Dressed up a little with some smart trousers? I think it looked ok:

While I was in the Scout-making flow, I also whipped up another couple, one using some printed cotton from the fabric swap, another using an impulse coupon buy from Joann 🙂


The insides of the others, I just finished by pressing the seams open and overlocking the edges, and the hems by overlocking the edge, folding over once, and then stitching down. Simples.

    • I can’t take too much credit for the fabric (except the whales), I just spotted them with my eagle eyes in the fabric swap!

      I also have some awesome safari print fabric that is awaiting a project.
