This shirt started from a sketch i made in the “broken sewing machine” period, one month ago… I decided then that it’s going to be one of the lucky sketches that actually becomes reality!
To make the peacock feather trails quite literal I transformed a feather snap editing it into the desired shape and chose 6 shades of acrylic fabric colours. I have been planning for some time to try fabric painting and now I’m eager to try some more! The artificial silk is recycled from a saree and it matched my project perfectly!
There are peacocks in the wilderness close to my house, I haven’t had the chance to see them yet, but now with my new camouflage shirt I’m sure I can pass among them unnoticed! Also hopefully that would be the only context to (proudly) go unnoticed in my new shirt!
Last but not least, best wishes for the New Year: if Santa skipped something from your list, may the New Year bring it to you! And may you feel as proud of your clothing as a peacock!
