I accomplished this by using the sleeves and upper bust area of the Plantain Tee, which is tighter fitting, and grading out to the cocoon shape of the Inari tee dress. I also ignored the split hem in the pattern, but did maintain a bit of a high-low hemline. The fabric is a super thick double-knit from Gorgeous Fabrics, which is a lovely color and looks great, but it's pretty synthetic, which I'm not crazy about.
The cocoon shape is not the most flattering, but it's super comfy! I also promise I am not pregnant, despite the bump. :) The neckline is the one thing I'm debating changing up. I used a typical knit band, and it's pretty wide because I used a double-width of the cables, so the finished band when folded over is one cable. In theory it's a good idea, but the fabric is so thick it kind of makes the neckline look all squidgy and sloppy, as well as I feel a little little like I'm choking (I have to keep pulling it down to look like it does in the photo). I'm thinking about just chopping off the band and doing a lower neckline without a band, but I haven't decided entirely yet. What do you think?
There are three pieces left in my fall sewing plans, but I've already decided to switch gears a bit. Stay tuned for fall sewing plans, part 2!
