I made another Plantain Tee! This time I cut a size 44, and I’m happier with the fit. I also shortened the torso by 1″. I could probably take another inch out of it. (I’m 5’2″, so this is not surprising.)
The fabric was an impulse buy from Mood at $15/yd. I cut this out of 1.5 yds.
I’m particularly happy with:
- the fit: it’s comfortable, and feels like the amount of ease I was aiming for
- the collar: it’s my first time sewing a successful neckband on the serger, woohoo!
- the pattern placement: eyy, it’s not bad, right? I like the way the floral matches up across the sleeves, even if it’s not a seamless pattern (that wouldn’t have been possible with this large scale design).
- the fabric cutting: me and my rotary cutter are becoming friends. ❤️ I’m getting faster, which is good, because fabric cutting is what keeps me from sewing more often…
