what a cute name for a pattern company…
A blog backlog here. I made
several, a couple a few,Deer and Doe Plantain t-shirts.
This one, purple and mauve stripe is 100% cotton, a beautiful quality, fine with a subtle pattern in the weave.
It’s my new favorite top pattern. A good fit straight from the pattern. This is a freebie from Deer and Doe and sometimes you get what you pay for but not here. I really like this t-shirt.
Fitted at the shoulders and flaring at the hips, has a neck-band, that just sits right. It comes in three sleeve lengths, though so far I’ve only tried the short.
This fabric is a poly-cotton jersey, I thought the colours were quite groovy. It also goes nicely with my first Moss Mini.
On the Melbourne frocktails fabric shopping sojourn, organised by Anna, I came across the same fabric (at The Cloth Shop, new to me!) in a pink colourway. Sort of wish I’d picked some up now, then again I think I have enough t-shirts………….
This one of unknown composition, and I’d have to say poor quality. Purchased from ClearIt on the Melbourne frocktails shopping extravaganza.
Orange and grey fluro also from ClearIt, also unknown composition, but a weave like French terry and much more sturdy than the red and white stripe. It did however fray like crazy, so I ended up using bands on the sleeves as well as the hem, otherwise it was going to fray away to nothing. Interesting working with the fabrics that are used for mass production! I do like a bit of fluro and this t-shirt goes pretty well with the pineapple jeans.
This one is a delicious 100% merino made with left-overs from my Megan cardigan. mmm could be a twinset, yeah maybe not….
mmm too many t-shirts? too many stripes?
Anyway a great t-shirt. I’m going to try the long sleeve version as the weather starts to cool. I’ll definitely check out other Deer and Doe patterns.
Have you made many of one pattern? Which one is it for you?
Anyone else gone overboard with Papercut’s Ahoy collection? I have, jumped right in with the Moana and Sea-bell! There’s already been some lovely makes from the collection on the interwebs, looking forward to seeing more.
