Recently I read a couple of pattern reviews of Deer and Doe Plantain Top. I have a love-hate relationship with t-shirts. They never fit right, crew necks look horrible, shoulders are too big, blah, blah. But I love soft knit fabrics for casual wear, or under a jacket or sweater. This one sounded promising, and since it was free, I downloaded it immediately!
Last summer I made up Simplicity 8138, a simple hi-lo top. Now that summer is almost here, I’m wearing it more. So I decided to make it again!
At the Sewing Expo in March I bought 4 pieces of inexpensive cotton. Three were perfect for skirts, but the moment I saw this piece I knew exactly what it was intended for … a shirtdress!
