The pink and yellow stripes of the fabric made me feel like Iím at a never-ending circus in my head. All you can eat cotton candy!



I made the shorts for our weekly game of ultimate frisbee, but I get a kick out of wearing the set together. So far I havenít really worn it out yet, but I think it would be great for a bike ride to the ocean. In the meantime, Iíve been wearing the shirt with a polka dot skirt or pants.


The fabric was meant to have the stripes running horizontally, but since itís got great stretch in all directions I figured I could rotate it with no problem. Since I was already re-thinking the orientation of the fabric, I went ahead and used the back side. I like that the stripes look a little more painted on, and it hides that the fabric is turned.


The shirt is a heavily modified version of the pattern I made for T shirts. Itís got raglan sleeves that come to just below my elbow, which is an unusual length for me, but I think it works great for this project.

Stripes are so much fun to work with, aren't they?
The shorts are nifty, but the shirt is REALLY cool. Love the tidy collar, and the stripe reversal on the sleeves. Tres chic!
Well done.

Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so.

I may not have gone where I intended, but I have ended up where I needed to be.

I love that stripes can be fun or sophisticated, depending on how you use them, the cut, and the colors. That's versatility!
