Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
I just have a quick one for you today–my plantain tee.
I cut a straight size 36, but added an inch in length to the bottom and shortened the sleeves by an inch.
The only change I made was to the elbow patches. I drew a heart, layered it with some stretch lace, and sewed them on with embroidery thread.
For the hem, I gathered matching lace with some picot-edge elastic, serged it on to the bottom, and top stitched with a twin needle.
The sleeves are serged, turned under and topstitched with a twin needle.
And, big surprise, the neckband is also topstitched down with a twin needle. I’ve recently gotten into getting one line of stitching over the band, and the other over the body of the garment. I just love the way it looks–and it lays so flat.
Overall, a very easy, kinda boring make. But so so perfect for wearing with leggings and lounging around the house.
Here are some detail shots, because it’s Valentine’s Day and I love seeing that stuff from other people:
Happy Valentine’s Day guys!!
