A man’s sport shirt with rockets

Unlike most of my vintage-inspired sewing projects, this one isn’t from a self drafted pattern, but made from a late ’50s – early ´60s sport shirt pattern that mysteriously existed among my sewing patterns. The fabric is from a Scandinavian fabric store chain called Stoff&Stil and with such lovely ’50s style rocket ships I just had to have it. Lots of it, it has this far been turned into bed hangings and a wrap dress for my daughter Maja, a dress for me and this shirt. It’s not much left, but it will be turned into a pair of shorts for my eldest daughter. Photos of these things are, or will be when they’re finished, over in my blog.
