I made up this top as a muslin. The fabric has been sitting on my shelf for quite a while, one of those prints that I loved online but felt less pleased with in-person. It's actually been surprising that I've found myself reaching for it this week, which I think is a good sign for my relationship with this pattern.
This is a size 36, sewn with 3/8" seams rather than the 5/8" called for. I prefer 3/8" on knits, and I was between sizes so this gave me the extra room I needed. I do wish the sleeves were a little bit more fitted, so I think I'll try either altering the pattern to fit the sleeves from my beloved Jalie 2921, or sewing with the intended 5/8" SA for a closer fit. I also definitely need a forward shoulder adjustment on this... the shoulder seam moves back a good 1/2-3/4" while I'm wearing it.
As for future versions, I'm definitely making one with this fox print from Girl Charlee:
I've also got a sweater knit & chiffon combo idea, and a white tee with some fabric paint embellishment. Anyone else making a Plantain?
