Wow, these are totally fabulous. I would definitely notice someone walking down the street wearing these. The lines are nice and simple and the construction and fabrics are complex enough to make the shirts super interesting/awesome.
This is both beautiful and moving. I've known a few of my friends go down the path of self-injury, and even though it was difficult for me and the rest of the people surrounding them, I can't imagine what they went through themselves.
Congratulations on finding closure for such a sad experience. And for contributing more crafty and cozy goodness to the planet!
At first I wasn't sure, but the more I look at it the more I prefer the pinafore with the straps. They add a little something to it. I suggest you sew on the straps with big bright buttons. That would be (in my opinion) super cool.
p.s. I love the fabric you chose. And those goggles are crazy. In a good way.
You know, my mom sometimes says things like that - that she can't wear certain clothes because she's over a certain age. And I scold her every time. If you like the shirt (and you should!) and it looks good on you (it does!), why wouldn't you wear it? There is no rule stating you must stop being fab once you've reached any age (I mean, think of Anna Wintour).
