Plantain Tee with Short Sleeves

Separates is my word for the month of June, in I need them in my wardrobe.  The emphasis of my separates is tops, more and more tops.  I went through my pattern stash and pulled out several I wanted to make again, the Plantain Tee was my first choice.  I made it before in a long sleeve version.



I love this shirt and I have seen so many on blogs and Instagram which I love too.




On my first one, I was nervous to use the full seam allowances but this time I made it with the correct seam allowance.

I am so thrilled with this top, the fit and shape are wonderful.  I used some knit jersey form Mood Fabrics for the top.  I cannot even explain how fabulous this fabric it.

Last week I was on a navy sewing kick, this week it is red.  I have several red items to make and another project using the leftovers from this top.  The fabric just feels to  good  not to use it again.


This will not be the only time you see a new Plantain tee for me.  I know of 2 more I am going to make.


Not much outdoors time for me, it has been raining since the first of the week.  While I miss being outside, I do feel like I have had lots of sewing time.

    1. Thanks, Joen, it really seems like I cannot have too many tops. Especially in summer, I usually end up with some kind of stain on them by the end of summer!

  5. Opps Did I not mean to delete my comment. I really like this tee and the concert tee. Your fabric looks fun :) I have not printed the Plantain pattern, but your short sleeve version has changed my mind.
