Diner Shirt

As you can probably guess, I'm "a bit goth" and quite like black. I also like the 50's style bowling / diner shirts made from Simplicity pattern 3847. The pattern is actually for a costume and needed major alterations to fit well. If you make it up as per the pattern it turns out a bit shapeless and sack like. To give it more shape I have added darts to the front and back, and splits at the bottom of the side seams.

The pink fabric is called "Pretty in Punk" and the black fabric is broadcloth.



The patch on the back of the shirt was from a market stall in Fortitude Valley.

Thanks to polymonkey for taking the pics.
