Hummingbird print Scout Tee

July 4, 2017

Last month when I went to the Sew Up North meet up, I was very restrained when it came to buying fabric.  I don’t like having a big stash of fabric – it stresses me out if I can’t just sew up what I’ve got, and it makes me feel somewhat unproductive.  As we wandered around the market, I saw so many lovely fabrics, and all at such great prices, that I was too overwhelmed really to pick one out.  As a consequence, I spent most of the time just standing near the stalls and chatting away to everyone instead, which was great!  However, when we got to Jack’s Fabrics, I noticed that Amy was holding a rather lovely bolt of fabric, and IT WAS ONLY £1.50 PER METRE GUYS!  It was a silky sort of fabric, very light and floaty and drapey, and I knew it would be just perfect for a Grainline Scout Tee.  I wanted another one as I’ve been wearing my first version a lot with jeans and with my denim Moss skirt.  Both Amy and I bought a couple of metres each, feeling very pleased with ourselves.

I made my top on the Monday – it’s a super easy and quick sew!  The top doesn’t really have much hanger appeal, but stick a pair of boobs under it and it looks grand.

I can wear this without a cami underneath and it isn’t so sheer that my bra shows, so that’s handy for when it’s really hot, and with a cami underneath it’s a bit warmer! Win!

Looking forward to seeing what Amy makes with her fabric!

    This is lovely! I looked at this fabric too but I was being very controlled about focussing on buying plains so I left it. If I had bought it I’d probably have ended up copying your pattern as well so if this disappears from your washing line you know where to look 😀

    Great top! I think I’m glad I didn’t realise the fabric was that reasonable, my willpower struggled as it was!
