Lord what a difference short sleeves make! I love it! Somehow it still has that retro feel, but with a modern aesthetic. Way to go.

It's funny, I feel like you took the design full circle back to a fitted 60's mod color blocked tunic that was probably somewhere behind the idea for original garment. Great work.

Great recon!  This would look so cute with some jeans. But hey, give that before shirt a little credit.  I remember when I had several shirts with wings like that for sleeves.  That was a huge thing! Quite literally, huh? lol
