SHIRTS!

They're the perfect place to show off your creativity.
Play with stripes, mix prints, or mix prints with solids, use stand-out buttons,
swipe pockets from one pattern and put them on another, make them long, make them short,
change the sleeve length, choose unusual fabrics.

Where will your imagination take you?

Point of View B
Also Point of View, view B, in a poly print.  I left an opening in each side seam at the waist.  The sash wraps around the body, comes out through the openings, and ties in front.  A bit dressier, yes?

I can't wait to make view B in classic white cotton.
