How many times will you make a pattern before you've had enough?
I've made three Tovas (and another coming soon!), more than three Wiksten tanks (I haven't shown the fourth on the blog) and five variations of Sorbetto (again, not all blogged). And I'll happily make more of all of these now that I've got the fit right and I know that they work for me.
And I think I'll add the Scout Woven Tee to that list. Here's my third:
I went for the 3/4 sleeve variation again - this time adding another inch to the sleeve length. Apart from that, it was the same as before.
I had intended to add a collar, but forgot to adjust the neckline seam allowance before I cut the pieces, and in hind sight, I think the collar wouldn't have worked so well with this print. Next time ...
This version is made with brushed cotton. Brushed cotton always reminds me of pyjamas, so I was worried that this might end up looking a bit nightwear-y. But it doesn't. It does, however, harness the best qualities of PJs: it's warm, comfy and so so snuggly. It's a little less drapey than the red one I made, but still drapey enough: I definitely wouldn't want to use anything much heavier than this.
This is how I wore it to work last week (I'm not ready to give up the boot-cut jean, I don't care what fashion says). I think it will also look good with a straightish skirt (Moss mini, coming up soon!).
The colour is all over the place in these photos due to the poor autumnal lighting. And since Boris the laptop is still off sick, I'm blogging from the iPad (with photo-editing software that I can't quite use!). The above photo is closest to what the true colour is.
So here are the sums:
1.5m brushed cotton from Fabrics Galore - £12
Grainline Scout Woven Tee pattern - £0 (already own it)
Thread from stash
And will I make this pattern again? Ab-sew-lutely (see what I did there? yak yak). I might take a break from it for a while, but there will be more of these in spring.
Back soon with another FO!
