Plantain Sew Along #1 The Intro
We have been searching for the perfect t-shirt pattern and we think we've found it! The Plantain is a free download from the French indie pattern company, Deer and Doe. Their website is bilingual, you just need to switch to English at the top left corner of their page. Then create an account and you are all set to download the pattern! This pattern is simple, quick and easy to make, has a great fit, and it's free! We love that it's roomy in all the places you need it to be but still fitted where you want to show off your curves. And there are so many ways to make it your own. This is the type of shirt you want to make a hundred of! We've already made three and we have fabric ready to be washed to make more! And really, who doesn't want to live in cute, comfy tees? HOW THE SEW ALONG WORKS We will share a series of posts during the month of April. These posts are designed to walk you through the details, give you clever tips and help you be more confident as you sew your own Plantain. SEW ALONG WITH US We would like you to join in the fun and make a closet full of Plantains too! Share your own tips and tricks that you have with us and ask questions so we can learn from each other. And of course, we want to see your finished Plantains! WIN! Everyone that finishes a Plantain in the month of April and shares it with us is entered to win a $50 gift certificate to our shop!
