I wear this to practically everything. Sorry, world, if you think my wardrobe consists only of teacher tops, tshirts, and this one eyelet lace thing. Well, I'm actually not sorry because it's mostly true.

The pattern for this comes from Grainline Studios, and it's called the Scout Woven Tee. Grainline is Jen Beeman, and besides selling contemporary and adorable patterns, she also gives some great sewing advice and pattern tutorials.
I had also seen a few other lovely ladies create tops from this pattern that was the last convincing step to adding this pattern to my growing collection. Miranda of One Little Minute displayed hers here and Kelly of True Bias also made one here. Both looked fantastic and their fabric choices were wonderfully whimsical. I had tried to make patterns from old tshirts before but those resulting tops had turned out pretty sub-par. The directions and the pattern for the Scout Tee were fantastic, however, and I was pretty excited for how this turned out.
And just for fun, here's a couple photos of me and my two sisters at a family get-together this weekend. We're a rowdy bunch.
Here's to more cutting, sewing, and creating... in the middle of grading papers in a crazy work week. Happy crafting, all!
