second scout

i had planned on using my silk gritty kitties fabric to make another top using the scout pattern by grainline studio (see my first version here), but then i thought it would be fun to use the kitties with one of my own patterns, so i could have it in the shop...  more on that soon...

i still wanted to make another scout, so i pulled this fabric from my stash...  something i bought at a giant fabric market in beijing a few years back.  it had some really nice crinkles in it, which pretty much got ironed out, but i'm hoping they'll re-appear with a wash.

i made a few adjustments to the pattern to make it fit me better and rounded the neckline a bit.  i also did french seams throughout, which was really fun.  jen has a great tutorial on making (straight and curved) french seams here
