A while ago I bought this navy blue striped cotton and recently I decided to use the fabrics I have (too many…) rather than buying new ones. Initially I wanted to cut several pieces and organise the stripes to go in another direction than just plainly across. I started drafting, but was never really in love with my ideas and at one point I started liking the “plain look” of the french sailor shirts and just went for it :) sometimes it’s the simple things..though I still have enough fabric to create something else.
