Scout and Cloud

I have another scout-out-fit for you today!

I love wearing this scout! Batik fabric from Thailand, hem straightened out to keep the selvage, it’s crisp and happy.

This is how I wear my scouts most often/ what I wear most often full stop. Scout, skinny jeans, flats if it’s warm, cardi and boots if it’s cool. Too easy! And I get to enjoy wearing lots of fun fabrics!

Isn’t this little cloud cute? Stumbled upon him and was happy I was wearing something unblogged! Thanks mum for the pics!

This is my second Alder shirt dress by the lovely Jen of Grainline Studio. I am a huge fan of Jen’s. I have made 4 moss skirts, 8 scout tees and 3 archers with more of each in the works! I love the drafting, the construction, the versatility, and the way the finished items fit so well into my wardrobe.

I never know which buttons I will use when I begin. I like to audition them right near the end of the sewing process. I’m always a bit in awe of other bloggers who seem to know right from the start just what to choose. In the end I thought seeing as I went with the cute gathered skirt option, in cute kitty/heart water colour fabric, I may as well go all out and choose the cute sparkle buttons!

Two weeks ago I accidentally sewed one of my french seams back to front, and then last weekend I didn’t read the instructions and struggled with the first right angled french seam, but today I plucked up and finished the dress. I’m super happy and relieved because I love it!

My bro even helped me out and took the photos for me! In the photo below I was trying to get him to give me pose ideas… Yeah I’ll be working on that! But I do love this dress!
