Let it never be said that Michael isn't an intrepid model!
We had a foot of snow today, the temperature was 24 degrees Farenheit, and this shirt is made from lightweight cotton voile, but really, what better better backdrop to showcase the fabulous animal print I purchased from Metro Textiles last week?
We were able to shoot this in roughly two minutes, which is fortunate, since today's winter storm warning cautions "Prolonged exposure to cold can cause hypothermia." Our job done, Michael quickly bundled up.
I love the way this shirt turned out. Michael says it's his new favorite, though he says that whenever I sew him something. Still, this one really is special.
A few detail shots:
The inside collar stand is black polished cotton.
Same with the inside cuffs.
Each cuff has two buttons, with a single button on the sleeve placket.
The buttons are genuine mother of pearl.
In closing, this fabric definitely has a John Waters vibe, but the black cotton contrast and the traditional cut keep it from being too over the top. That's my opinion anyway.
How about you? Would you wear a black, white, and neon orange leopard print shirt -- in a blizzard?
Have a great day, everybody!
