Rush Order Shirts....4 down, 2 to go!

Friday, June 10, 2011
Here are a couple of quick pics of  2 of the 6 rush order shirts that need to be sent  to my clients by Saturday. I managed to get 4 of them shipped yesterday, and I have been given an extension until Monday for the others if I need it...and with my other business obligations, I probably will ;)  Anyway, please bear in mind that these pics were snapped in a hurry, right before they were due to be shipped....  Am I making excuses for crummy photos?  Yes, lol.

This shirt, hastily folded in half and "pin draped" on my photo wall, is made from light-weight textured cotton/linen gauze.  Please do not think I am losing my mind or skills... it's supposed to look rumpled and crumpled :)  I was going for the "Couture Limp Dishcloth" look, and I think I hit the mark with this one!  ;)

I had just enough time to get this batik shirt on my "man-form" and snap a pic before I needed to get it folded, packed and on its way. I just love the color of this one...don't you?  It reminds me of a tropical sea.
