I’ve been getting a few questions about lengthening the sleeve for the Scout Tee so I’m super excited to show you Shivani’s Scouts today! She made the first 3/4 sleeve tees I came across and I think they turned out great. Not only do the longer sleeves she made look amazing, I love her fabric choices! Hope you enjoy these as much as I do!

Name  Shivani

Pattern  Scout Woven Tee with a 3/4 sleeve!

Shivani’s Blog  Pins & Needles

Her Project Post  The First Scout and The Second Scout

What type of fabric / materials did you use?  “I’ve made this variation twice. The first is in a deep red polyester. The fabric is actually not great, but I’m a sucker for a floral print, and I couldn’t resist it. It has a lovely drape, which I think is important for this pattern. The second is in a brushed cotton. This might be one of my all-time favourite tops. ”

Tell us more about your project!  “I love the Scout woven tee, but I hate the cold, so I decided to try out a 3/4 sleeve for an autumnal take on the tee. I used the existing sleeve pattern piece, and lengthened it, tapering it slightly towards the cuff.

I borrowed the cuff pattern piece from another pattern. But it’s basically a rectangle *about* 2″” x 7″”.

I love that I can now wear my Scout woven tees through the cold weather. These two are real work horses, and I’ll be making a couple more before spring (when I’ll switch back to the regular sleeve length!).

It really is a great pattern. Its clean lines are perfect for showing off a gorgeous print. I love it!”

    I love your versions of this pattern, Shivani. It was seeing your tops that made me want to make my own, and I hope to make more soon too.

    These are so gorgeous! Shivani always picks the nicest prints. :)

  3. Such beautiful fabric, and so elegant in the longer sleeve. My printer is out of ink (grrrrr!) so have had to put my scouts on hold for now… Will definitely have to try it like this too!

    great tops! And thanks for these posts – it is nice to see projects made from your patterns continually, not just around the time of new releases. Not all of us get to them right away so it’s nice to have some inspiration come up down the road again!
