This is my third Scout Tee, this time made in Art Gallery cotton with a broderie anglais yoke at the front as I only had a metre of fabric. This pattern is blissfully easy, on the Grainline Studio website you can find a sew along, tips for fabric and lots of other advice. I made the bias wider and turned it to the outside to break the whiteness of the broderie anglais. Although there are no darts, this top does sit beautifully. I am a UK size14 and made the size 12. This top is a loose fit, so it’s worth lying one of your tops over this before you do the side seams to gauge size. I added the yoke by sewing the main fabric to the broderie anglais and then cut the front so the main fabric started about 4cm down from the armhole and find that gives a nice line. I have also made this top in double gauze, I cut out a 14 for that one to make it looser.
