Well known is the Plantain Tee proposed by Deer and Doe (by the way this t-shirt pattern is free).
To me, it was me first time making a
wearable garment in knit. One of my sewing friends suggested to do a Plantain-make meet up with 2 other friends so we could do it at the same time, which I thought it was a funny idea.
I made my first (yes, this is the kind of pattern that you keep on making) with a brown/gold sparkly knit fabric. And I think that with some chit-chatting, our Plantain t-shirts were made in about 1 hour and a half. It is a pretty straight forward project and Deer and Doe step by steps are perfect.
After the first one, it came the second… in a velvet-kind knit fabric.
I love the uncle (as they are called in Singapore) that is staring at me at the back of the pic 😉
And then, the third Plantain tee (I am sure it won’t be the last). In order to make it a little bit different from the 2 previous I decided to add some “ruffled-wings” to the shoulders.
I simply cut 2 half moons and gather the straight part of each one. Then, I just added them in when sewing the sleeve to the bodice step.
And this is how it looks.
I like how different it seems just with that simple twist.
As I mentioned, this is my third Plantain tee, and I use all of them very often. Now that weather is going to get colder it is a good time to try a version with long sleeves.
Have you made this pattern? What do you think of it?
