I made this shirt last summer as part of my autumn sewing plan to brighten up my wardrobe and add a bit more colour. The fabric isn't very nice; it's a sort of polycotton, the same as my turquoise skirt. I only bought it because of the great colour. Also being a crush-proof fabric, thought it would prove practical in my animal-centric lifestyle.
Digging it out recently, I'm kinda thrilled this will fit in with my autumn/winter plans to inject a military flavour into my daywear. When I had first finished it I felt a tad Star Trekky in it and tucked it away in my wardrobe with a slight shudder, thinking, hmm, will do for under jumpers and jackets as a nice spot of colour with the earthy tones of winter; but now I'm feeling more friendly towards it and actually am planning on wearing all exposed like, as here. Does anyone else do that, make something, take an immediate dislike to it and shove it away, only to rediscover it a few months down the track and realise it's not so bad after all?
