The minute I tried on this shirt I thought to myself, “Ooh. I should really make this for pajamas.” It’s so soft, it’s so cuddly. If you were here I would hug you and you would see what I’m talking about. This is truly a scrumptiously soft tee. And the best part is that the pattern is free! It’s another from deer & doe, the plantain tee and you can get it as a pdf on her site.
The fabric is a jersey knit probably made by unicorns on rainbows in the clouds because it’s magically (did I already mention this?) soft. I got it during the big sale when Project Anthologies closed, it is from the heaven & helsinki line designed by the talented Patty Young.
I followed the pattern pretty closely and I love the fit. It’s a big ‘roomy’ at the waist but not in a bad way, it make it relaxed and easy-going. The shoulders and upper bodice fit perfectly. I added contrast cuffs to the arms because I usually find sleeve length too short for my long, lady arms and the cuffs added just the right amount of length. The contrast fabric is also from the same Patty Young line.
I can already tell you I’m going to be making more of these shirts for the summer. I might have already purchased a whole bunch of knit fabrics from Girl Charlee to do just that.
