This project uses stash fabric and a pattern I've used two times before - virtual high five to me, I think. It's the Scout Grainline tee which is the perfect casual woven top. The fit of this top is so forgiving that I have worn my 3 Scouts before, during and after pregnancy in the same size. It's so versatile, I love it. Of course the key to the top's success is using fabric with a bit of drape, otherwise it would look boxy and unflattering, as it has no darts. I've used a rayon I bought at Parons (I think) in the Garment District during my 2012 trip to NYC.
The only alterations I made to the pattern were to make a broad upper back adjustment and add 3 inches to the length. The inside is finished with french seams though I used my serger to finish the armholes which was really handy as I've never worked out an easy way to neatly finish this area with conventional seaming techniques.
I just love the shape of this top with jeans as it looks a bit smarter than my usual favourite knit tops.
One problem I forsee is that the light fabric snags easily and with two cats in the house I know I'm on borrowed time before it sustains a claw-based injury. I also suspect that I should lower the armscye for the next version, as I've noticed that I get that 'armpit bunching', for want of a better phrase.
This was a great project with which to begin 2014 (though it was mostly sewn in 2013, technically).
