Spring ’14 Wardrobe: Madewell Scout Variation

Grainline Studio | Madewell Scout Variation

Hey guys! I’m back today with another Spring ’14 Wardrobe post. I’ve been a bit slow on the spring wardrobe making, but then again, it’s April 16th and the snow from the other day just melted. Either I’m waiting for spring to finish this wardrobe or spring is waiting for me, and if it’s the latter, I apologize wholeheartedly!

This top is based on a top that Madewell has been carrying for the past few seasons, but I kind of hate the way most Madewell shirts fit me so I never purchased it despite trying it on a few times. I figured I could make an easy job of this style by starting with the Scout Tee pattern and doing a few easy tweaks. It would have been an hour or two project except that I photographed every step to give you guys a tutorial! Yess!!

It took me SO long to photograph this tutorial, but it was also really really fun. I discovered there’s an iPhone app for my camera that acts as a wireless remote soooo that meant I could put my camera on a tripod, use both my hands to handle the fabric in the photo and then use my big toe to trip the shudder! WHOOO technology!!

I really love how this shirt turned out, and the fabric is no small part of it. The folks at Robert Kauffman were kind enough to send me some of their 6.5oz denim for this and another project and I have to say, it’s the perfect weight for a denim garment! I’m kind of a big fan of this stuff from way back when, last summer I made a Moss skirt & Maritime shorts out of it, and my couch *might* be covered in it as well. Anyway, I love the way it sews up and can’t wait to show you the second project in a few weeks!

    I am so excited about this!! It’s super, super cute Jen. I’ll have to check out that denim. I just ordered a bunch of Steven Alan twill and it’s lighter than what I expected. Maybe it would be good for this shirt??
