Blue Linen Scout Tee
This is the first Scout Tee I made and also, incidentally, the one that has turned out the best. I love the seam allowance in this pattern as it makes french seaming easy to calculate. I love neat insides and so french seamed this pattern. Then, because I felt ambitious, I embroidered a reminder to myself of my inherent value in the seams.
I had lots of fun with this pattern, even though I hate set in sleeves. I actually felt that french seaming my sleeves made it easier to set them in--my first seam had lots of tucks and gathers even after my best effort! But my second and final seam had all the tucks and gathers hidden in the seam allowance.
I opted to use bias tape to finish the neckline and the sleeves and I chose to hand-stitch it.
The fabric is linen from an old pair of pants I never wore. I had just enough fabric for this shirt.
And I love the end result. I wear this shirt as often as I am able! Which, now that it's ridiculously hot here, is several times a week!
