UPDATE!!! 5/18/08 Check it out... This shirt can be seen on the ESPN website in a short video about the revival of roller derby. Watch carefully at 1:01 and you can see Ref Roller Dex wearing this shirt...
http://sports.espn.go.com/broadband/video/videopage?videoId=3401989&categoryId=3313263&n8pe6c=2


I made this shirt for one of the roller derby referees, hence the black & white stripes. Some tricky pattern matching involved here, especially with the piping. This is one of the fastest shirts I've ever made, taking about seven hours from start to finish.







Do you think anyone will have a hard time spotting the ref?

Haha, I don't think so.

OMG I know who Roller Dex is! I live in Indy and I will get to see him wear it at the bout this weekend (if he's reffing that is)! Go Tornado Sirens!!! This is a cool pattern. You do awesome work on their uniforms, too. I love how many are embellished with something having to do with their names.  Cool

You will definatley never get lost in that.  I can't believe you made that.  It's looks store bought, but soooo much better.
