PROJECTS // COMPTOIR DES COTONNIERS INSPIRED SCOUT TEE

Hello, dear reader!

I have a weakness for earthy autumnal tones, especially the color palette of leaves – ranging from yellow to brown, passing through red and plum.  It’s probably the reason why I’m so deeply in love with the Liberty print I used for my latest project! Yes, another Scout Tee… but they’re just so unbelievably comfortable! I mostly buy my sewing notions in a department store – that means I always have to pass through the women’s fashion department (among which is the French Comptoir des Cotonniers) first. I’m usually in deep thought, daydreaming about upcoming sewing projects, as I walk through uncountable racks of clothes. A few weeks ago, I spotted this lovely silk blouse with triangle cut-outs on the neckline… of course it immediately inspired me to try something very similar!

PATTERN: Scout Woven Tee by Grainline

FABRICS: Liberty “A Stitch in Time” print tana lawn

MODIFICATIONS: I lengthened the shirt and sleeves and added triangle cut-outs to the neckline and sleeves

THOUGHTS: Personally, I just love the loose and modern fit of the Scout Tee! It pairs so well with the cottony drape and unique softness of Liberty tana lawn. And I’m actually pleased with the look of the triangle cut-outs! They certainly add some visual interest to my otherwise rather monotonous fall outfits. I just need to choose carefully what I wear underneath.

Have a calm weekend!

Love,

Louise
