Last week the French sewing pattern company, Deer & Doe, released a new free sewing pattern. The Plantain T-shirt is an adorable basic tee pattern with contrasting elbow patches and as soon as we saw it we knew we had to make it!
Caitlin went plantain-crazy and made 3 new tees in just a few days! She customized her tees by using a contrasting knit on the back. This first one is a drapey soft bamboo/organic cotton blend jersey and a cute floral from her stash.
Amber used an organic cotton/soy french terry in Aubergine, which stitched up into the coziest tee around!
Jaime picked a hemp/organic cotton fleece in her current favorite minty green color and added a teeny pocket detail. The three of us went for the 3/4 length sleeve option, one of Plantain's three sleeve lengths.
Sara joined in the t-shirt making fun and made a long-sleeve Plantain in organic cotton jersey with hemp/cotton stripe embellishment.
Sara added a cute pocket and finished her collar in her coordinating stripe, for maximum adorableness.
The unstoppable Caitlin made this cozy Plantain in soft grey with a coordinating lavender stripe and embellished it with a pocket and contrasting back.
Caitlin embellished her orange stripe tee with sleeve tabs and buttons. So cute!
Jaime and I couldn't resist using a scrap of Caitlin's adorable floral jersey as our elbow-patch embellishment. Matching Plantain Tees for all!
