With the end of MeMadeMay (if you are wondering where my last week post went, I kinda fell off the wagon ) and the need for loose fitting shirts to hide the post baby bump, I decided to whip up another scout tee with some of the scraps in my stash.  You may recognize the floral fabric from my archer recently.

I lowered the neckline by an inch, the sleeves by about an inch, and the hem by about 2 inches.

I love the combo and ease of this shirt.  It’s such a great way to get rid of scraps too.  If you havn’t made up a scout tee yet you really should.  In fact there is a sewalong going on here.

    Awesome idea with the different back! I’ve been wanting to make one with a solid black front and sheer black back but you’re making me consider two different colors all together!

    I love the different front and back! I finished my first Scout tee a couple of weeks ago. I love it but I’ve been constantly thinking of ways to customise it. This is great!

    Fabulous! Funny sewing coincidence: this afternoon I had this great idea to make a scout with two different fabrics, front and back. And now, well, I feel a lot less innovative 🙂

    Love the idea of a printed back piece. The colors look amaze on you too. Think I’m going to have to look into this scout business…

    This is beautiful! I love the contrasting fabrics you used. It really turns a regular tee into something special. 🙂

    How fun! The flowers on the pocket look so great against the red fabric on the front of the shirt. xoxo

    This is gorgeous! I love the idea of using two contrasting fabrics like that. I’m looking forward to getting started on my Scout tee for the sew-along this weekend!
