Cool shirt!! You should make a jacket version of that. What material is the fabric anyway?? So how do you stop the shirt from gaping open when you bend down to pick up something?

It looks really good.  Drapy but masculine--that's really difficult to pull off.

I salute my fellow boy craftster!

I really like how the hidden zipper came out, first time I saw the pic I thought you only added these 2 buttons and left the rest open.  Roll Eyes

Your shirt also reminds me of one of my first attempts on a jacket. Mine looked a lot like yours does now, but I surely did not want it to be asymmetrical. Thank god these times are over now...  Wink

Sew on!

You're right about the mens fashion restrictions, but whats stopping you from wearing a skirt?
I saw manly skirts on a website once. they were odd but not stupid.
but I'm quite sure no manly boy would wear a skirt.
Interesting menswear to the face.
you did good.

thanks for the comments people  Grin , as for some of the questions...

I dont think I could make a very good tutorial (since I just winged it), I just cut the fabric based on a t-shirt but with two sections that overlapped drastically at the front, added a lining on these two front bits and then basically hemmed all the sections up and sewed a zipper on the front.

The material was one that I have had lying around my house for ages, i'm pretty sure its actually a pants material, really quite stiff (hard to press) and a bit coarse.

And yeah the front has a open-end zipper on just behind the inside flap running from the press stud down to the bottom, thats stops there from being a gaping big hole and makes it easier to get off.

Yeah I haven't managed to work up enough courage to wear a skirt out in public, i do own a "just below the knee" gray tailored skirt, but I think I need to make a full length black one.

I have to come up with some more designs, thinking of a fitted girlish top, a cross between a 50s diner inspired top and a chinese traditional top (those ones that are normally silk), black with white piping.  But any one else got any ideas?

Since your (fab!) shirt looks something like a motorcycle jacket, I'd call it a "motorcycle shirt".

Spreading out men's variety in clothing; kudos.
I've had my own ideas of how to do so as well, but not as great as this one.
I'd want this in my closet.
Of course, if I can't have it - I make it.

I think as far as the mandarin collar and 50's style, they are both similiar in that they do utilize piping. To avoid it looking too much like a chinese top, I would make sure to use buttonholes + buttons instead of the loop and button closure, or frog, and add a breast pocket. But mandarin collars are always awesome, all the time. You could also cut it a few inches longer to be reminscent of a rockabilly insert-type button up (name is escaping me right now, dammit).

And stretch knit is your friend!
