I bought this cotton fabric in IKEA, it comes ready cut, 150 cm by 3 m. The pattern is called IKEA PS batik, and it is designed by Kazuyo Nomura, a textile designer.
The fabric has blue waves on the borders, and I played with them to make a shirt for my husband and a shirt for Sidra. The shirts are similar, but the blue waves are in the opposite places. I use Jakob pattern for my husband and a Japanese pattern for my son. The patterns are for regular shirts, I changed them a bit to have stand-up collars and side-slits. As an element of surprise, I put one red button on each shirt.
