Description

For this project, my base pattern is the Scout Tee from Grainline Studios. I picked out a few pieces of Sari remnants that had been given to me that I thought looked good together. I wanted to use a border print at the bottom of the shirt, and I lengthened the shirt pieces a few inches to show as much of the border as I could. I also incorporated an embroidered elephant fabric by drafting front and back yokes pieces, and I used a third smaller ikat print fabric for the sleeves. I widened the bias binding strip, and used it on right side of the shirt, so that it would tie the yokes and main front pieces together visually.

I imagine the path that the saris must have traveled- from India to Illinois, through multiple owners- from sari wearer, to artist, to me. It looks equally good with white pants for a dressy outfit, or with shorts for a summer day. I love my new T-shirt! The Scout Tee pattern is really well drafted, and I’m sure that I’ll use it as a base for many future projects.
