I loved this building print, and there was a coordinating taxi cab check that was the same soft, high quality fabric, so I got it even though it’s a bit seizure-inducing. These are a small nod to my brother David, who’s lived in New York City for five years now. 🙂
I forgot to take a picture, but the tag is a scrap of tractor ribbon – a small joke.
For the shirt, I sewed a 3/8″ bit of the yellow checkers along the bottom of a strip of buildings, then cut the tops and appliqued them as a city skyline.
Fiddly but fun, and I like the way it turned out against the red shirt.
