My Ombre Hombre shirt...

Allow me to introduce my new favorite T-shirt!  Rough, extremely easy and casually sewn...

This great ombre signature print T-shirt fabric is from Elliott Berman, and the contrast is from Rosen & Chadick (contrast is also used to make a slim, short skirt to wear with it).  I had the grommets installed at Star Snaps (in just a few minutes, actually... extremely inexpensive... and PERFECTLY), and the lacing is from Daytona Trimming.  Two slightly shaped and zig-zagged rectangles.  That's all it is.

And what does the text mean?  Who knows... who cares?  I like the colors.

Nope.  I'm not one for doing cheeky poses to show pieces on my body.  I'm neither "movie star" nor "Everywoman" - I just prefer to let a piece make its appearance on its own.

The Daytona Trimming salesperson didn't wholeheartedly agree with my choice for the lacing, causing me to second-guess myself... and then I actually found children's shoelaces at Foot Locker that I thought were a more perfect color and weight.  Once the shirt was finished, though, my original Daytona choice was the right one.  I appreciate his input, but the lesson here is: Trust your gut.  Glad I bought it anyway.

Great spelling mistake on the T. "Strenght".

Still fits squarely in the 'nonsense" category for me... with spelling mistake or without! I just love the odd color combo!
