Sew Something

  • Deer and Doe Plaintain Tee in Liberty Jersey

    Sometimes we all need a quick sewing fix.  Projects that are fast and easy but with finished items that are useful and satisfying.  One of our go to quick sewing projects is the Plantain t-shirt from Deer and Doe. Even better, this pattern is free!


    Patterns really don't get any easier than this! It's a simple t-shirt with a gentle A-line shape, a banded scoop neck and set-in sleeves that comes together in an hour or two. The pattern offers a few different sleeve options that include short sleeves, 3/4 length sleeves and long sleeves.  She even provides an option to add fun elbow patches, which have been all the rage this year! We squeezed this t-shirt out of a yard of fabric so stuck with the short sleeves but love the idea of long sleeves with contrast elbow patches for the Fall!

    We used the Liberty of London viscose jersey in Dominic C and ended up with a sweet little statement t-shirt that we love! They are truly a delight to work with and wear! However, they do have quite a bit of stretch so we found that we had to shorten the neckband a little to make sure that the neckline lay flat.

    If you've never worked with knits before then this pattern is a great place to start. It's also a great place to give these lovely Liberty fabrics a try! Now, having tried this fantastic Deer and Doe pattern, we can't wait for the others to arrive in the shop!
