I’ve just finished my lastest Scout Tee in my lovely Liberty fabric.
New favourite top? Yes, I think so.
Shall we have a look at the fabric?
I added a little tag at the back neck – it’s just doubled over bias tape, but it means I can always figure out which is the front and which is the back. A random little tip I picked up from Didyoumakethat’s Pyjama Party a year or so ago. I do this for most things now, except sometimes I use this dodgy tape/ribbon stuff with “Handmade” written on it in various tacky fonts. It’s handy!
I must say, I really am in love with this pattern. I don’t have much to say about it anymore, it’s all been said on my previous versions!
It’s so lovely and silky in this fabric. I wish I were rich. All my clothes would be Liberty from now on.
I’ve found that you can squeeze it out of 1m of 115cm fabric, if you skip the self-bias and just use pre-made. Much as I love the look of self-bias, it’s not really worth buying extra fabric, especially from somewhere like Fabric.com, where you have to order by the half yard. Speaking of which, I’m not 100% positive you could get it out of one yard of 45″ fabric. It was tight on my 1m and 1 yard is about 10cm shorter…
I posted this one on Kollabora also, as part of the Scout Sewalong hosted by Sewn Brooklyn.
