Today is my day off and my crafty urges have surged to the forefront. I accidentally stopped at Stone Mountain on the way home from the airport the other day and bought a few pieces of fabric. No, I don’t need fabric but I was powerless in the half off section. Powerless!
This green linen is yummy and one of about 20 colors that are half off (just enabling). I thought I’d use it to make a Scout Woven Tee. I’ve been meaning to try this pattern out but didn’t know quite how to approach it. I’d made the Grainline Tiny Pocket Tank a while back and that was a huge failure – super tight in the boobal area.
I wanted a breezy, loose linen top so I made sure I measured the pattern to have lots of boobal ease. I swung out the side seams to make it A-line and then went crazy and high/lowed the hem. I know, I detest the high/low skirts because they look so cheap and sleazy. Why high/low the top? Don’t know, seemed to fit my breezy idea.
The color is bright grass green and not as scrubs reminiscent as it looks photographed with flash. I think it turned out a bit big so I’m going to wash it again in warm water and see what happens. I do think I’ll wear this unless you all tell me it looks maternity. I just don’t think this is the best look on me so I will make something more fitted next. A dress I think. Of course I’ve got big plans an only a couple of days off so perhaps I’ll have to work on my patience first.
