A Plantain Tee with a Punch
The theme for Project Sewn this week is "If the Shoe Fits." The idea is to make a garment that goes with a pair of shoes you own. My first inclination was to make a dress to go with a pair of new black boots but as I've been thinking a lot more about making garments that fit my everyday style (thank you to this post and this post) I decided to give the much lauded Deer and Doe Plantain Tee a try. But I couldn't just leave it as a plain tee, I wanted it to have a little punch so I added a back panel.
I first began sewing with vintage Barbie dress patterns at 8 years old. I was a prolific Barbie dress maker until I was too old to make doll clothes. I began sewing again 6 years ago and haven't stopped since.
