May is right around the corner and should be a very exciting month for me. First, it signifies the end of my first year of grad school. Yay! It will be nice to have a brief respite from paper writing and journal article reading. Second, it’s Me Made May! This year will be my second year participating in Me Made May–a month when sewers challenge themselves to wear their handmade wardrobe more–and I wanted to up the ante a little bit. Here’s my pledge.
About two weeks ago, I made an adorable orange Plantain t-shirt. When I made it, I wasn’t thinking clearly, and cut a European size 34. Supposedly this corresponds with a US size 4, but it turned out more like a size 00.
Deer and Doe, a French designer, recently released their Plantain t-shirt pattern for free. After seeing Plantains pop up all over the blogosphere, I decided to make my own.
