I've been swooning over this Blue Carolina fabric line ever since it released, so you can imagine my excitement when the designer of this line, the wonderfully talented Christopher Thompson, asked me if I would participate in his blog tour. Of course, I jumped at the opportunity because I already had a few things in mind to sew with this fabric.
I knew I wanted to sew a top with this white floral fabric and since statement sleeves are all the rage this year I decided to do a bit of pattern hacking. I chose the Grainline Scout Tee which is a woven tee with a scoop neckline, cap sleeves and a loose fitting body. I really wanted to add a bit of drama to this blouse so I decided to add large statement gathered sleeves.

Love the top and the fabric. Thanks for the tutorial.
That fabric is so dainty! I love ruffled sleeves- I've never thought of pairing them with a loose-fitting bodice, but it looks great here!
