This is the shirt that started it all here at La Mercerie! The Scout Tee is the perfect introduction to sewing apparel, with simple construction and clear instructions for techniques such as straight seams, bias binding, setting sleeves, and basic hemming.
After you fully understand the basic Scout Tee, Grainline Studio offers multiple variations on their blog, including v-neck and jersey knit versions, as well as how to sew french seams for a professional finish. It's a great way to master basic skills and practice new techniques as you become a more advanced sewer.
Suggested Fabrics: light to medium light weight fabrics such as cotton, silk, lawn, voile, charmeuse, crepe de chine or wool crepe. Extra fabric needed to match plaids, stripes or one-way design fabrics. Perfect for beginner sewers!
