Spring Scout Woven Tee

Added Apr 17, 2013

Hickory, North C...






I have nothing but enthusiastic RAVES for the Scout Woven Tee from Grainline Studio! It’s a fairly simple to make, super-flattering and easy-to-wear design. And well-worth shelling out $6.50 for! For the front of the tee I used reclaimed fabric from a vintage 1970s floral print scarf.

Yes – quell horreur! – I plead guilty to cutting up a perfectly fine and wearable vintage scarf, but it was put to good use, right? And I have a confession – I have tons more of these oversized vintage scarfs in my stash just like this that I’ve stored up from my various thrifting adventures. I find that, at $.50 cents to $2.00 each, they are an affordable fabric option for small projects like this and usually offer nice pops of color or unique design that’s usually hard to find in modern fabric.

Since I only had a small amount of scarf fabric for the front I opted for a matching rust-colored rayon challis for the back and the sleeves. I found this fabric at a thrift store as well. This tee is extremely comfy to wear I really love the swingy fit! Although the floral scarf fabric is slightly sheer, I opted not to line it because I have a feeling this summer is going to be a hot one and I plan to wear this often!

    This top is so lovely and what a great idea to use a scarf for the front. So very chic! I have to admit, cutting up a perfectly good scarf would be hard for me even if it did only cost 50c. I have bought this pattern so I may have to go and have a look in my scarf drawer now that you have inspired me.
