The Pajama Look

sheer-shirt-6086

Perhaps I mentioned my fascination with shirts lately. Here’s my latest. It is a pattern from the book “Book of Mens Shirts” by Ryuichiro Shimazaki, altered for me. The fabric is a silk sheer-and-opaque stripe with dots printed on. I think it looks a bit like a pajama top, but nice enough that it would not be mistaken for actual pajamas. I hope.

    What a beautiful shirt! It doesn’t look like pajamas at all.

    Gorgeous shirt. The workmanship and pattern matching is masterful. How long did you spend on it?

      Thanks! It took me almost a week. I had used the pattern before, so it was already traced off.
