I am glad that you suggested elastic cord for the button.

Very nice. Love your choice of fabric. This is exactly the type of blouse that I have been looking for to wear under a couple of sweaters I have knitted.

Looks like a great alternative to the Grainline scout which does not have bust darts. That's one difference. Love these easy to make tops !

I hope you are getting lots of use out of your top this summer. It's good to know about the sleeves - because that is the version that I wanted to make. Thanks!

I KNEW those sleeves were wrong strongnow! You can look at them in the envelope and tell. I tried making the sleeved version for my daughter and she complained about the sleeves (she also needed a broad back adjustment). I wonder if the armscye needs to be scooped/lowered...

Your review just hit the spot with me. You are so right! The sleeves did not work for me. Too binding. I removed the sleeves and the top fit beautifully. I am not sure how to fix this, but I am working on it. As for the weather...this winter just goes on and on and on, but sewing lovely summer things is a great antidote.

I like the print. I also like how the hem is rounded in the back. This top will be perfect for spring and summer :)

What a great way to survive winter and get ready for summer!

Pretty top, looks cool and crisp. I need to get cracking on summer sewing, it has been in the 80's and higher for weeks! You look cute!

Love your top - looks so fresh and summery! Sooo much better than pattern photo!

Really cute top! Yours is so much prettier than the pattern's picture. Looks like a great fit, too.

Cute and how quickly it went together :) Nicely done!

I have not made the scout tee Adaire! Good to know we are measurement "twins" :) Thanks ladies! I am over optimistic. We have a snow storm coming and I reminded myself while in the sewing room today, that we got snow last year right before Mother's Day (MAY!!)

I LOVE your top. It is much more attractive than McCall's prototype. Great choice of fabric, too. Let's hope spring comes soon!
Adaire said... (3/2/14 7:54 PM) Reply
Except you live in MN and I live in FL, so we have different needs.
Adaire said... (3/2/14 7:53 PM) Reply
Pretty! You are definitely an optimist with the weather. Have you made the Grainline Scout T and how would you compare it. I love your reviews as we have nearly the same measurements.
