fall wardrobe part three + a new pattern



Adding another garment to my Autumn Wardrobe from look 1 in my illustrations, I’m calling it the Liberty Print Scout Tee as it’s made in Liberty Tana Lawn (we’ve discussed my superior naming abilities before, ha!). This was my first time sewing a garment with Liberty fabric and I am super impressed with this fabric! A few weeks ago I did some fabrication on a piece for a Chicago artist and he used Liberty Tana Lawn for half of what we were sewing. It was so nice I knew I had to order some for myself. This is the Wiltshire print in berry.


I love the cut and versatility of this top and I’ve already ordered the navy lace and red wool crepe to make looks 2 and 3 of the autumn plan. It works well with pants or a skirt and is a great layering piece. The pattern is my own, available here.


Luke and I did the shoot outside our apartment on Saturday afternoon and it was FREEZING! I think the high was 54˙ that day and you definitely needed a coat. The light was so nice though we couldn’t resist. While editing the photos I have to wonder why we did the shot with the cardigan inside and without outside…next time I’ll think this through better!

      Thanks! I can’t believe I haven’t regretted the cut at all so far, first time from long to short that’s happened!

    Beautiful!
    Tomorrow morning (when my boobs are super big…not a joke), I will take my measurements (see if it would work with my body type) and buy one pattern. Perfect breastfeeding top 🙂
    You’re awesome!

    Love this! Have bought the Scout pattern and modified it to fit me, and cannot wait to make it in a Liberty print fabric too! Very wearable tee and I can see this working nicely as a top with slightly longer sleeves too!

    hello! i’m so late in the game, but just wanted to let you know that your blog + tips are awesome and i just purchased the scout tee. i’m so lucky to live near liberty so will be making this scout in some discounted liberty fabric i got last year. I am dying to know where you bought the red wool crepe? it’s so hard to find the perfect shade of red, so hope you don’t mind me asking! xo Carol

      Gah! So jealous of your proximity to Liberty!!! Don’t mind asking at all, I keep meaning to post where I get the fabric for each project but always forget. I got the wool at Mood online, here’s the link. Hopefully that works? If not the product number is FW11301C so you can search that.

        Awesome, thanks for the link! And don’t be jealous- if you ever want/need any liberty fabric just shoot me an email and I’d be happy to help as I do spend much too much time there anyway.
