I made this shirt to wear to see Animal Collective at the Hollywood Bowl. It was awesome. AWESOME.


The striped yolk seemed like an obvious choice, and then I noticed the orange pompom trim collecting dust on the corner of my desk, and from there it snowballed. Gold neck binding–definitely! Faux-epaulettes out of blue lace–of course! Teal and gold sleeves, left over from a dress–sew them on!


Also this was a total stash-busting project. Nothing new!

You can see the boots on Craftster (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=415586.0) or on my own blog (http://madebyjulianne.com/?p=4264)

Wow, that is an amazing tee. It really captures the feel of the Hmong shirt. Great work!

I was feeling rather meh and blah after an utterly soul-sucking day at work, but this totally made me smile. Thank you for that. I love everything you make, even when it's not something I would wear, it's always so full of joy.

SWEET! And thank you. And yeah, that makes me feel good.

I'll be posting about the boots soon. I made them for my wedding!
