Absolutely love this shirt. So impressed that you knocked-off a Vivienne Westwood. Thanks for the inspiration and helpful review.

Amazing! Your modifications make the garment completely couture. Great work, especially in use of the plaid!

Love love love this on you. I like it even better than the Vivienne Westwood ones - your plaid is fabulous. Great work on a versatile, funky, and overall awesome top!

Fabulous top! I think yours is so much better than VW's. Yours makes the VW look like the knock-off. :) Also well done on matching thoses plaids so perfectly.
