SO MANY STRIPES! I ordered this striped jersey fabric a few weeks back from Fabric.com. It is such nice fabric, soft and comfortable!
This week I decided to use it up because I really wanted some casual spring additions and these looked like they would be easy projects... which turned out to be true!
First up is the Plantain shirt by Deer & Doe that was made in approx. 2 hours. This shirt pattern is great because it can be short sleeve, 3/4 length, long sleeve, have patch on elbows, etc. What makes it even more than great is that it is completely free! She has this Plantain t-shirt pattern for free online. This is a great beginner apparel project, so go try this out!
I actually wore this shirt to work today though I'm not sure if people could tell that it was a shirt that I sewed... There is ONE person who did figure it out pretty quickly though, my awesome manager who is a much more advanced sewer than I.
I really like this shirt because it has a lot of movement, comfortable without it looking slubby... so it is still appropriate for "smart casual" dress code at work and good for this transitional weather.
Warm weather is on the way, hooray! AND, it is almost Friday!
