I've had at least one of these photos saved in my inspiration files for a while now, and I think it would look fabulous in the purple:
Now here's the rub - I'm positive I've seen a vintage pattern for something like this somewhere, but I can't find it. It wouldn't be that difficult to draft my own (as is my typical fashion), but I'm trying to be better about learning how to properly sew and not just make up my own way, and patterns are really useful when it comes to that sort of thing. Anyone ever seen a pattern like this before? What do you think, is it a fun shirt, or just a little crazy?
