I woke up at 5am last Tuesday and just could not get back to sleep, so I whipped up this Deer and Doe Plantain. I did a size 46 graded to 44 at the waist.
I really like it, and I think it fits better than the Lark! I wore the Lark and quickly realized the shoulders were much too narrow. That is strange since I don’t have wide shoulders and haven’t seen any reviews on the pattern about that.
The Plantain shoulders fit much better, and I kind of liked the drapeyness of the hips at first, but after wearing it one night I think I might want to slim it down a bit. Easy fix!
I had to use my sewing machine since my serger still will not cooperate. I’ll try to take it to the shop this week, but in the meantime I just felt like sewing.
For my next shirt, I might make a v-neck Lark/Plantain hybrid with solid black. I really need to make more solids, my closet is looking like an acid trip.
