How did they make this?
Do you ever look at the new fashions and stop and say, "Hey, I could make that!" ?
The interesting looking cotton T shirt above could be yours for $345 from Net a Porter. They say, "McQ's black cotton T-shirt with wrap-around scarf will become your off-duty urban uniform. Wear it with love-worn jeans and a soft leather bag to strut downtown" I like the "love-worn"jeans" image. I wonder if mine are 'love-worn" enough. (I'm quirky, I actually prefer new, dark "unloved-worn" jeans.) Or we can figure out how they made it and design our own, with, dare I say, a few improvements.
The base part is easy, I would use my Pamela's Patterns The Perfect T-Shirt for the base shirt.
But how do you think they attached the scarf part? It is hard to tell from their picture. Do you think they just attached the scarf at the back neck and then let it fall freely to each side so one can swoop it about? If you have any ideas, please share, and we can save $345. (Also we can make ours in much prettier colors.)
