The inspiration for this shirt is a photo that Shams pinned to her Pinterest page. I thought it was cool. Then I thought, “I could do that.” The pattern is from The Book of Mens Shirts by Ryuichiro Shimazaki. This is the third, or possibly fourth, shirt I have made with this pattern. The upside of making so many shirts is that I’ve gotten really fast at it.
The fabric is a mystery fabric that I believe to be a linen/rayon blend. It was a rather unattractive (on me) shade of peach. I bought it with the intention of dyeing it, so I figured it would be perfect for a tie-dye project. I used Procion dyes from Dharma Trading. I think the color is called something like “Midnight Blue”.
