I found a really nice black pull-over dress shirt and thought it would make a perfect ribbon shirt for a friend.

The shirt was long sleeved, metal zipper from hem to just under the armpit, 3 buttons at collar and a small-is front pocket.

I sewed Pride coloured ribbons on a scrap piece of material and had them come from the pocket, over the shoulder and around the back. I just had them follow the shape of the shirt. Left the ribbons long so my friend could cut them to the length he likes. Did the same for the cuffs - - but added snaps because they look better than buttons.

Thankfully - he got it before graduation, it fits and he likes it!

That looks terrific! I love how the loose ribbons hang down the back, clever!

WOW! Very nice!

Something is going on so the photo of the back isn't showing up. I know I'd like to see those flowing ribbons! Wink

That is what I am seeing, too, the front of the shirt twice.  Cry

WOW! Thank you for going through all the trouble, because it is really great on the back and worth seeing!

My friend graduated from university today and he wore this shirt!
I made it as a gift for him and am so very touched that chose to wear it today.

I am so very proud of him. He begins his masters program in the fall.
