Deer and Doe, the Plantain. This pattern has been out for a bit and I'm sure most of you have seen it around, but I am totally kicking myself for not making it sooner. It might be my new favorite knit top pattern. Considering all I ever want to make are long sleeve knit tops that is a big statement coming from me!
For the Plantain pattern you have a choice between long, three quarter, or short sleeves. Include elbow patches or don't. My favorite part is the flair from the waist, it makes the shirt so flowy and comfy.
The construction of this shirt went together smoothly for the most part. My only issue is with my twin needle. The tension must have been off somewhat because the hem is wavy. It doesn't bug me enough to not wear the shirt, but it's still annoying! Does anyone have any tips for conquering this issue? It's happened to me with a few shirts when I have used a twin needle and I must be doing something wrong.
The pretty purple jersey is from The Fabric Store in Los Angeles and you might recognize the scraps of leopard from my Project Sewn first look. You see, this is why I hoard my fabric scraps! You never know when you might need elbow patches, right?
Happy weekend, guys! Will I be seeing any of you in the clubs? hahahahha!
