Deer&Doe - Plantain T-shirt Plantain Babydoll Dress
Pattern Description: Plantain as a babydoll dress. I tied in the bold red elbow patches with a red reverse coverstitch topstitching on the sleeve and skirt hems.

BurdaStyle Magazine - 07-2013-122B Batik Dress
Pattern Sizing: This is in Burda petite sizes. I cut an 18 with no alterations and it fit great straight from the 'envelope' (or tracing sheets) so to speak.
