Striped Linen Scout and Plain White Linden

Me-Made-May is off to a good start! I’ve got a couple of new garments to share today, both from Grainline Studio patterns. First is this light and airy Scout Tee.

This top is heavily inspired by this lovely striped Scout.

I added a curved hem and lengthened the sleeves so they could be rolled up.

The striped linen fabric from Stonemountain is very lightweight and a little crisp.

Since it was a little chilly out I layered on my new Linden sweatshirt. Although I wasn’t sure about a plain white sweatshirt I resisted the temptation to embellish. And I’ve gotta say I’m glad. Thanks to everyone who recommended leaving it plain!

This is made from an organic cotton fleece. The only adjustment I made was to shorten the body by 2″ just like my other Lindens.

    Both very cute! I need a white sweatshirt and I’m sure I would wear it to death but I can never leave anything plain! Nice work.

    Great outfit! 🙂 Both shirts look great and sit perfect 🙂 I need one of those plain white tops too! 🙂

      Thank you! Sewing plain white things is a bit more exciting than it seems – I’m always worried I’ll stab myself on a pin…

    I love the linen scout! And I really need to get around to making the Linden one of these days — that organic fleece looks cozy!

    The clothes are awesome (not to mention worn by my favorite models)! I’m just learning to crochet, so your mom sent me the link to your blog.
