Plantain Party! Plus Bonus Soleil Dress

More of Deer and Doe's Plantain t-shirts!  Not for me, though, this time... sharing the wealth!

Check out these hot ladies in the Plantains I made for them!  I made these months ago and sent them across the world, but weather and timing only cooperated for them to take photos in the Plantains this past weekend... totally worth the wait:

Bonus me-made in the photo is Z in the heart-y Soleil dress I made a few months ago:

I actually made the Soleil dress for her younger sister, but it fits Z this summer, so it's on loan to her.  Looks like she also helping her sister open birthday presents here:

Wearing Soleil for some playground action:

Ok, back to the Plantains: I made a short-sleeved version for Chuck made from slinky and sheer teal and grey burnout cotton jersey from Girl Charlee, which is no longer available in teal, but is available in summery lime and orange.  Watch out when using this stuff, though, as we ended up with turquoise fuzz on everything that came near it!. 

A three-quarters length sleeve version for Martha out of this funky cotton and rayon knit from Joann's Red Tag area...

Love this pattern!
