Fabric from a Most Unlikely Place



Where?
Old Navy.

I found this in the clearance section for $8.
The colors are delicious - very retro feedsack. It's 100% cotton and it's a XXL - lots of surface area on this thing.
The flowers are set against a cream background and the bright colors are tamed a bit by the little touch of gray {isn't that a Grateful Dead song?}.

I see flying geese in this shirt's repurposed future.
Mmmmm. Flying geese.

  1. It almost reminds me of an old Liberty of London print. Actually, you're getting down to tradition by upcycling. I can't wait to see it all in action!

  2. Totally spot on with the Liberty print. How very brilliant of you, Miss Jean! {Imagine I said that in a British accent}
