Speckled Deer and Doe Plantain Tee

I’ve been needing more basic T-Shirts to throw on with jeans and I decided to try the free Plantain pattern by Deer and Doe. I’ve made two other patterns by Deer and Doe – the Blouse Datura and the Melilot. I was excited to try another one of their patterns! I Graded from a size 34 bust to a 36 waist and 38 at the hips. I then cut two inches off of the bottom before I hemmed it (I’m 5’2″).

I used melange jersey from La Mercerie and I really love it. I love that it is a neutral color while still being interesting because of the speckles! It is also nice and drapey which is perfect for a t-shirt.

I love this pattern for a more fitted t-shirt. There are so many boxy t-shirts out there so it is nice to have another option. There are still a couple of places I may need to adjust for fit but those are all minor (looks like I may need some more room in the sleeve cap?). I do want to keep trying different t-shirt patterns! There are so many out there and there may be one that I like better than this one.

Also – I’m wearing this with my second pair of Ginger Jeans. I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting about what I actually need in my wardrobe after listening to the Love to Sew Podcast episode on creating your dream wardrobe. While I’m not sure that I’m ready to get rid of the ginger jeans I’ve made in the past I do not think low rise jeans are my style any more and high/mid rise jeans have jumped to the top of my sewing queue! I’m excited to get started on making some more jeans this fall.
