Richard's Shirt Repeat

About a year ago, I posted about making my friend, Richard, a shirt out of some of my hand dyed fabric. Well, I'm thinking that this could be an annual event because I've made him a second shirt.


Everyone, this is Richard and his new shirt. One of the things I like about sewing for him is that he's not afraid to wear bold colors and prints. The pattern for the shirt is the same as the one I made him a year ago. Then, though, I hadn't thought to arrange a little photo shoot so that he could model his shirt.


These shots were taken yesterday morning after swim practice. He and I swim on the same USMS (United States Masters Swimming) team. His smile and probably mine are because the photographs were taken after practice. Everyone's always a little cheerier on the other side of the workout.

I forgot my question, did you dye it before or after you made it?

This is an awesome shirt! I only just discovered your blog and as a fellow fabric designer, I love your fabrics and that you hand-make them.

Good for you - swimming! I swam for 17 yrs growing up and tried the masters team in my area (Co.) but at the time I had 3 little ones and I didn't have the enery! The shirt's stellar, too.
