stripes and stripes

DON’T FORGET TO VISIT MY ETSY SHOP!

I’ve always liked stripes–I love to see the patterns of lines juxtaposed with an organic human form. I think this contrast is very approachable in bright colors, especially when they match my bicycle.

The fabric is a thin jersey, with the darker teal almost as thin as a burn-out. It’s very stretchy and also drapes beautifully, so it’s very flattering to different bodies. That’s right, different bodies, because I made two of these shirts, and the other is available on Etsy.

The keyhole neck has a striped loop and a ruby button, a decision inspired by Jason’s love of the fabulous. This was an important part of the design but I wasn’t completely sure about it until I wore the shirt out and about, and now I’m glad I went with my instinct.

Hooray for me!
