I pulled out the sleeve piece for the pattern and traced it out. I made the sleeve piece about 14.5″ long, but when I sewed it up, I found that length a bit short and had to hem the sleeve with binding. I will cut my next version out with a sleeve piece at 16″ or 16.5″. I also adjusted the side seams of the sleeve and brought them out a bit so that they drop straight down. I feel like I could adjust the sleeve a bit more, but I’m going to need some expert advice on this. I am wondering if I need to add any fullness to the sleeve cap due to adding the length and weight to make it sit nicer. I’ll report back after I do some consulting!
I also added a couple inches to the length of the body. I tend to like things a bit longer in length.
I love having good basic patterns to fall back on and this is definitely one them. The Liberty Tana Lawn is perfect for this pattern. Okay, it’s pretty much good for everything. But once I perfect my changes, I will be turning out a dozen more, for sure.

Thanks for showing how you lengthened the sleeves! I have just downloaded your pattern and definitely want to make an autumn version. Will let you know how it turns out 😉
hmmm, this looks great! I think I’m going to make more scouts as well, and get some cardigans for winter wearing. But a long sleeve sounds interesting too.
Love this Liberty print! The long sleeves are a great idea… will have to give it a try!

I like the bias neckline on the strawberry linen tee with the contrasting bias binding. Is the contrast neckline binding a stretch fabric or non-stretch fabric?
This is really lovely. I’ve been thinking of making a Scout for a while, but I usually only wear knits because I’m always cold! Your top is really lovely though, I think I’ll have to bite the bullet! Thanks for the inspiration.
That’s a great print. Looks like the scout tshirt is very adaptable.
