Plantain #3

Today I have another Plantain. I've made this pattern three times now. That's tied for my most-made pattern. My other Plantains, here and here, both have 3/4 length sleeves. This version has blue and white stripes and short sleeves.  It's made from a knit fabric from Joann's. 

Now that I've had some more practice with knits, and this pattern in particular, I can pull a shirt together in just a few hours. 

I've gotten better at the neckband, too. It lays nice and flat on this version. I can see myself wearing this shirt all summer.  Light and breezy.  

Fabric: Blue and white striped knit blend
Cost: 1.5 yards x $6.99/yard = $10.49
Time: 3 hours.  I'm getting faster!
