My First Blog – VERY Excited!!

This is the Scout Tee from Grainline Studios that I made in a beautiful Liberty print, (I also made the trousers but that’s for another post) bought from Fabrics Galore at their stall at Alexandra Palace, Knitting and Stitching Show, last October.  I had a fabulous day out with my friend Jean, whom I have passed the sewing bug onto.  If you haven’t been, I would absolutely recommend it, the sensory overload of fabrics and yarns gives you a massive high often causing your wallet to have a coronary!

The pattern is a very easy sew, no darts and an easy bias binding finish to the neckline.  I used the bias binding for the hem and sleeves too.  I love the easy fit although next time I will go down a size as it comes up slightly big, I made a size 16.  I plan on making it in a knit fabric too and for this I will definitely go down a couple of dress sizes to a 12 as knit will stretch.

This was my first go at doing French seams – yay!

It was a bit tricky setting in the sleeves – French seam stylie – but as long as you make sure the sleeve notches match, it’s ok.  I love the Liberty fabric, green is one of my favourite colours, although when I bought it I didn’t even notice that the pattern was birds – duh!

And finally, the bias neckline, I couldn’t get an exact colour match but as you don’t really see it, it’s fine.

Quite happy with my first attempt!  Let me know what you think, I would love to hear your comments!
