Pendleton Scout Tee

DSC_0164This is a pattern I have made multiple times, because I really like it. Its simple, really comfortable and one of those patterns that I feel like is a becoming a staple in my wardrobe.

For this one I decided to use a remanent of a light-weight Pendleton wool that I found over year ago when my Mom, Cupcake, and I where on a road trip. I was really pleasantly surprised to find that the Pendleton Woolen Mill actually sells a lot of fabric in a variety of weights and price points. Next road trip that directly will definitely include a stocking up stop!

So for this version of the top I ended up adding a little bit of width in the back to add some extra room for my shoulders. Way more comfy now. I also lengthened the sleeves to elbow length. Something about really short sleeves seemed really goofy in a plaid but I didn’t have enough fabric to go full length. Next time. Lastly I added the front notch. When cutting it measures 5.5 inches from the neckline. In the originally tutorial for this alteration they raised the neckline up at the same time but I really like the dip it already has. Not to mention I almost always wear a cami, so I wasn’t really worried about the depth of the notch.

With the weather being Oregon cold right now I will be wearing this quite a bit! Not to mention every Oregonian needs a little bit of plaid in their closet!
