Hi, guys! Hope you all had a lovely Canada Day and/or 4th of July, if you celebrate! I spent the long weekend at home, hunched over the sewing machine (OK, OK, maybe I took some breaks for pug snuggles and movie watching).
Here’s one of the products of my weekend sewing. It’s another Grainline Studio Scout Woven Tee, photographed just in time for the Kollabora Scout Woven Tee Sew-Along deadline! This wasn’t at the top of my to-sew list, but I love Kollabora (even though they’re basically evil because they bombard me with so much awesome inspiration each day that my to-make list is absurdly long!), I love Wanett (the head honcho of the sew-along), and I’m basically a Grainline addict, so I couldn’t help but join in on the sew-along fun!
I used a length of chambray that was left over from my first sewing project— a super stash-bust! My plan was to use the sweet birdie fabric that Sew Busy Lizzy sent me for the Sew Very Merry Christmas Swap, but I wanted to try out some modifications on less precious fabric first. I rounded the hem line a little bit and tried to give it a hi-lo hem, but it’s so slight that you can’t really tell (whoops!). I also added a pocket (from Jen’s Tiny Pocket Tank pattern) since the chambray is pretty boring on its own.
This isn’t the most exciting top I’ve ever made, but it’s super wearable and will hopefully last a long time (since I French seamed the entire thing so it’s nice and tidy inside). I’m hoping to make a few more versions of this top in the near future!
What are you guys sewing these days? Anything exciting? Who’s made the Scout Tee? Wanna be my friend on Kollabora?
