Pattern: Grainline's Scout Tee
Fabric: 1 1/2 yds rayon challis
This is the newest addition on the Scout parade. I just can't help it! It fits, it's a TNT pattern, and there's so many variations.
This time, I went with a split-back variation a la Dixie DIY. I kept it long so I can wear it to work, but I think it's a fun detail for an otherwise very plain shirt.
The fabric - a rayon challis - was a complete pain in the ass to work with. I love the final look, but I'm pretty sure it's off grain, and puckering in all sorts of weird places. Next time I think I'll use starch for working with a tricky fabric like this, but then again, I say that every time.
For the hem (which was a long one), I tried a few techniques until I got something that worked. I ended up serging the raw edge, and then turning it under along the stitching line. Luckily the fabric presses well.
Well, there it is! Hopefully back later this week with a more complicated make!
