Must get mustard

Made a nifty little shirt.

Modern pattern (Simplicity 4077, added a bit of length and a bit of width at hip but otherwise followed instructions to the letter) but old cotton fabric in a truly lurid mustard print. I got it from an op shop but I since saw it for sale off the bolt at the strange but wonderful Job Warehouse.

Oh! The buttons! I nearly forgot. They came from the Buttonmania haul!

Very nice shirt.
Is the fabric from the 1970's?

I love the fabric, and I love the fit and style of this shirt. Cute sleeves.

Lovely! I'm a fan of that garish shade of mustard. :D
