Deer & Doe Plantain Tee in our Art Gallery Fabrics Jersey

Posted by Laura Wilson on

It turns out that when you have school-age kids, you get major back to school vibes in September.  Ever the practical thinker, for me this manifested as a realisation that I need more casual, long sleeved tops that I don’t have to iron.     

 Art Gallery Fabrics Gran Piano Jersey in black, made up as a Deer and Doe Plantain Tee

I’ve been looking for a basic T-shirt pattern that will become my T&T (Tried & Tested) for casual tops.  The Plantain tee is a free pattern from Deer & Doe and I liked the look of the scoop neckline and loose fit.  For my first crack at it, I chose a lovely jersey by Art Gallery Fabrics – black stripes punctuated by little triangles on a cream base colour.  I had high expectations for this fabric – soft pima cotton with enough elastane to keep it comfy and bouncing back.  The high thread count makes it completely opaque so even the darkest underwear will not show through – I count that as a win every time I put it on.

 

The pattern was an easy sew and the fabric handled well.  I did struggle with the stripe matching – when the stripes are so skinny and close together, it’s hard to keep track of them in the cutting out.  I also had to do a bit of unpicking on the neckline and I was relieved to see that the fabric held up to this.

All in all, I’m really pleased with this top.  It’s being worn and washed almost weekly and it’s still looking great.
