my black stripey shirt

Reggio Emilia, I...






I made this shirt last sunday, trying to switch off my brain: studies and work don’t let me 1 minute free!
An old seamstress made me the great gift of the box of her vintage fabrics, and this is the first i use: a light shirting cotton, printed in small dots that create red and green stripes on a black background. on one side, the fabric had a sort of ethnic decoration, and i decided to employ it as a “placed” print, for the bottom hem of the shirt. I drafted myself the pattern basing on a beloved shirt i own, and i added the peter pan collar from the simplicity dress #4116 you can find here for free:

3/4 sleeves, back yoke turned of 90 degrees on the straightgrain, it is long till about mid thigh.
I’m really proud of this project, as this was one of my favourite fabrics (i get sick of every blck printed fabric i see!) and i wanted to experiment this pattern soooo long!

    I love that fabric and the way you have placed the stripes and border pattern. I bet it looks lovely on you :-).
