linen and wool scout

Have you seen the Scout sew-a-long on Kollabora?  I’ve already made a couple Scouts, but the idea to create your own variation with modifications/embellishment/whatever was like “duh!”  What a good, basic top to expand on!  So I rummaged through my stash and made a highly impractical short sleeve wool and linen top.  But I love the collar…



  • I used the hemline of the Wiksten tank
  • I cut the bottom half from a scrap of linen (I cut as much as my scrap would give me)
  • I added a collar; originally I had a Peter Pan collar in mind but when I was playing around with scraps, I thought I’d try something more geometric

I submitted it on Kollabora; if you’re on Kollabora and you like it, give me a heart!

p.s. I’m on bloglovin

  1. I love it, too! The collar is so interesting. You drafted it yourself? Either way, it’s great. I think the wool/linen mix will be perfect for fall and spring days when you need something warm, but not too warm.

    • Thank you! Yes, I made the collar. I meant for it to have a little more of a curve to it at the bottom, but I still like how it turned out. That is true about the fall and spring days – helps it not seem SO impractical!

  2. Well done-it looks spectacular, very different from anything else out there. And big ups for not going the peter pan collar way-the collar you’ve made is something special.

    • Thank you so much! It makes me feel good to know I’ve made something a little different from the usual.

    • Thank you! Uh, I just looked at your blog and I have to say your Scouts are pretty awesome, as well as your blog and your jewelry.
