I have been looking for a t-shirt type pattern for awhile that would work really well with woven fabric. My machines do not handle knits very well. I just have a straight stitch. Not even reverse. I tried making my own and they were not quite right. The Scout Tee got good reviews when I read about it online and I decided to give it a try.
I took a look at the pattern and I realized it is based on an A-line shape I have been enjoying a lot for the last year or so. Of course, can I leave anything alone? I tweaked the pattern a bit. I changed the sleeves and put a back seam in it so I would save fabric. Took a bit of fabric out of my stash and gave it a go.
I made this shirt as gifts for other people at Christmas but this is the first one for me. I like it. Mr. Bert said the fabric looked like Irish linen even though it is a cotton print. It skates well too. I may not make many, because I just do not have a need for many shirts, but this is going to be a go to pattern for when I want a simple tee type shirt from now on. It is so much easier then going to the store and trying to find something that fits!
