Buffalo Check Linen Scout Tee

I have been sewing quite a bit this summer, I am loving all my new garments.

It has been a perfect summer, lots of family time, pool time, time in my flowers and sewing!  I have been sewing a mix of harder garments and quick and easy garments.  This post is an easy garment.

The Scout Tee by Grainline Studio for quick and for the win.  I love how it sews and fits.

The fabric is Mood Fabrics' Buffalo Check Linen Scrim. I was not familiar with scrim, it is soft but has some crispness with a loose weave.  It says dry clean but I have washed my twice and all is good.  One of those washings is prewashing.

I am not sure my choice of pattern is the best, the loose weave doesn't hold the stitches the best.  I feel like the stitches were pulling at the seams and a few seams, I stitched twice.  I think a very loose garment would have been a better choice for my fabric but I really like this Scout Tee.  My trade-off will be the life of the garment.  It might wear a long time or might just fall apart, I am not sure.

I used some Picot Elastic for the neckline, it worked nicely and gave a bit of detail to the neckline.

You know how I love gingham and this Buffalo Check is just an oversize gingham, so you know it is a favorite.

I do think this will be great now for the hot August days but will be great under a cardigan for fall, too.


  1. I hope it lasts a long time for you as it is really cute. I made a dress a long time ago with a loose weave and the seams just pulled apart. I wonder if you sew some stay tape if that would help?

    1. I hope so, too Vicki and your suggestion is a good one, I might have to try it. Thanks

  2. My wish right now is that God should continue to bless Dr Emu for his good works towards the life of those people who are heart broken. My name is Michael DeBruin and I am from the USA, it's been a while since my lover's attitude changed from being the caring type she has been to me, but later turned out not to be caring at all. But not long, I later discovered that my lover was having an affair with someone else. and also she told me she doesn't need me after all we pass through then a friend told me about a spell caster. that with the spell I will get back my woman, I took his cell number then called him and also what's-app him which he reply to me and I did some sacrifices to the spell man and he bought the items for me which he used for the sacrifices and later called me that before 48 hours my love will come back to me and now we are more in love with each other than ever. you can reach him on WhatsApp +2347012841542 or reach him via mail ; emutemple@gmail.com , my lover returned back and broke up with the other guy she was having a relationship with... Thank you Dr Emu.
