I've wanted to marry these two patterns for what seems like ages. This is a mash-up of the Grainline Scout Tee and the Megan Nielsen Crescent blouse and I think I found my new bff for the summer. The Scout is a definite tried and true pattern for me and I've even made one with great success for my Mom too...really need to blog about that! I love this basic woven tee soooo much I've made several in rayon challis and they are incredibly functional, comfortable and dressier than a knit tee.
I've also made the Megan Nielsen Crescent blouse in the past and really enjoy the feel of that top as well, in fact its on the list o' things to make for this summer again. But this combination of the bottom panels from the Crescent and the Scout top turned out exactly like I hoped they would...so gratifying!
Basically all I did was slash the Scout around my waist area making sure to line up the front and back at the side seams and measure up from the bottom of the Scout (because it has a slightly lower in the back hemline) and added the panels with no other adjustments. The fabric is a mystery, it was given to me and I thought it might be silk but a burn test just melted it. Its lovely regardless of what it is, very drapey and light...my two favorite qualities for fabric.
There will be so many more of these to come...so my question is what patterns have you married (or hope to marry) with great success?
