Deconstructed Shirt- 'Casual Monday' Pattern Magic (not) for...

Pattern Magic shrug meets business shirt. Adapted the ‘apple skin’ shrug to a men’s shirt pattern and extended the neck to a tunnel. The seriousness of the buttons and fabric clash so well with the irregular shaped sleeves and collar/ cowl. Cursed- it’s too small for me so ‘Frank’ is wearing it.

      Frank likes the sound of her. He ask’s does she have a facebook page? Sorry, he’s pretty cheeky.

    Really nice mutant work there Don :) Must be frustrating that Frank is the one who gets to show if off ;)

      Thanks Joost. He is a bit of a show off- he’s gone to the pub wearing it. I said “Dude, don’t spill drinks on my new shirt”. And he’s all “As if I would?!” He will probably pick up someone.
