It’s been a bit since I’ve made a shirt for my love. Considering that I forgot our anniversary in March, he deserved a really nice shirt when he got one again. Maybe in some…TIGER PRINT RAYON?

Those tigers came from The Fabric Store in New Zealand and the quality is just gorgeous–opaque enough for a shirt, buttery soft, and cool (temperature wise, but also it’s just cool). I used the New Look 6197 that I’d used a couple times before, so no construction mods or issues.

I pattern matched the hell out of the pockets but the center fronts didn’t turn out quite as accurate as I’d hoped. But overall, I think I did the fabric justice.
