First things first, I happened to take a picture when I was cutting it out, and I just want to mention that I will never go back to pins or cutting out with scissors if I can help it! Pattern weights are just so much easier and faster to use, and the rotary cutter is much more precise as well as faster.
And without further ado, I give you the completed shirt! It doesn't quite have the crisp, tailored look I was going for, and in hindsight, I should have realized it. While the Scout tee is a super simple, quick, satisfying pattern to sew, it doesn't come with details like darts and any closures. This gives it a loose fit, and it's particularly noticeable in the upper sleeves with the long sleeves. I'm not exactly an expert when it comes to sleeves, but I do know there has to be a certain amount of ease if not working with a stretch fabric, but I wish they were just closer-fitting. It just feels a little sloppy to me, but it is a very comfortable shirt, and I love the color.
This photo shows the texture of the fabric a bit better, which is really the stand-out feature. It's a cotton/silk woven fabric, which is a bit like raw silk, just less shiny and a little heavier. Looking at this photo, I'm thinking maybe I should add two patch pockets at the bottom, to give it a little more interest - what do you think?
And just for fun, a closing shot of the insides. Instead of the french seams, I serged all the seam allowances, as this fabric would fray like no other otherwise. I used a scrap of bias tape that I had left-over from another project for the neckline binding, which was literally the exact size I needed. And who doesn't like have some stripes on the inside?
