I posted on your blog. I love your shirt. This sheet thing is so much fun. I was always hesitant spending a lot to sew up pjs or a lounging around caftan but don't mind sacrificing an oddball sheet for the cause. Now those nice 70's printed sheets that show up in thrifts when grandmas linen closet gets donated are looking stylish once again.

Peter, I love your shirt. I have been looking for a pattern very much like this for my husband. Thanks for you wonderful reviews!

This shirt looks great on you. You're built for this style (to the envy of many) and the flower pattern is so 70's - love it. Great review - enjoyed shooting the sheet with you.

Well, my first thought at seeing the photo in the gallery was.....guess he is getting ready for spring, now if it would just get here. This is another fine looking shirt and yes, you are ready for spring, or at least a tropical vacation.

Stellar! And just in time for the blizzard, too! I really do love the (ahem) side front sections. I hope you make this up in more version!

I love all your puns!

Kay, at first I read that as you love my buns! That would have been my preference but glad you enjoy the puns, too. Prince seams...I like that. Thanks for all the kind comments everybody!

Looks so good on you! Peter, the best sewing adventure writer there is, publishes another hit.

Very fun shirt. The close fitting 70's style looks great on you. Maybe you should try the hip huggers too :)

Total groovieness, love your shirt! I'm getting a flashback of a time of western wear influence and wonder if that's what inspired the prince seams in this pattern? Look at the pants in the pattern illustration, those "western pockets" I think they were called. And try the one piece collar and stand thing sometime, you might be pleasantly surprised if the draft is good.

Ooh, I think sewliz has got it -- I was trying to image that as a two-tone shirt and I kept thinking it looked western for some reason! I wonder how PRINCE seams would look on a dress shirt?

A groovy 70's shirt from a thrown away sheet. Who knew? Great job.

I love the fabric. Being from Texas, I think you could put pearl snaps on it. I LOVE your blog too! I look forward to it everyday.

Looks fabulous! Love the idea of upcycling the sheet. Wish I had someone to sew it for.
