Very interesting and creative result, and you're completely right about the back. Good for you, refusing to make coffin clothes :-).

Nice job! How neat that you were able to whip this up when the store didn't have what you wanted.

I just based it on the picture in the ad.

I'm another one who likes your shirt better than the inspiration piece! The more muted colours and the narrower stripe I think are much classier. And a great drafting job too - did you base it on a block or an existing pattern?

It's a day for stripes. Glad your review didn't end up next to mine. Your take on the striped shirt is fun. I especially like the sash-looking diagonal across the front. Very creative!
