Better By 3
You may have seen on Instagram a few weeks back, my frustrations with Deer & Doe's Plantain tee. I made the pink on up first only to find out that my cozy merino poly prop had a massive neck and was anything but cozy even with a scarf. I thought about leaving it as it was but fortuitously I purchased way more of the fabric at The Fabric Store than I actually needed so was able to cut a new front and neckband. This did make my size 6 version a smidge tighter but I was lucky enough ease as to not make it too tight. For the new neckline I used Tessuti Alexa, a favourite of mine which is the perfect depth for the depths of winter.
Being of the 'one is never enough' opinion, I then set too and made two more in cotton lycra. The first in practical white and the second in classic navy and white stripes. Both are made from a lovely heavy weight cotton lycra from Fabric Vision.
Some might say a tee shirt is a tee shirt, and there is certainly a lot of Indie tee patterns to choose from but what I particularly like about this one is the fitting bodice and gentle flare at the hips. It doesn't cling and ride up like some are prone to do and on a 8 shaped body it gently skims the hips.
All three tops are now in regular rotation and could well be my new favourites.
