Friends, today's the day!
You can see Michael model the new summer outfit I made him here.
Swiss dot is the most summery fabric I can think of (okay, maybe seersucker too). It's so airy and delicate and cool-looking.
It's fun to turn fabric usually associated with womenswear into menswear, and create something you wouldn't find at J. Crew, Banana Republic, or Brooks Brothers. I didn't choose the Swiss dot and the striped linen (which I used for Michael's shorts) at the same time or with any intention of combining them in an outfit. It was pure luck that I had both in my stash and they paired up so well together.
A hot spell is heading this way, apparently. With Michael's latest outfit, some sunblock, and a bottle of water, I think he's well-prepared.
Have a great day, everybody, and stay cool!
