Checked shirt – front
This checked shirt was a birthday present for my fiancé. I reckon it turned out pretty decent considering I made it in secrete when he was still at work or at the grocery store (guess who sent him to do the shopping ;) ).
The shirt’s made from a thin cotton fabric I picked up a while back. It was a real bargain and besides, I’m a sucker for blue.
My camera’s still crappy as ever. I swear, one day I’m gonna by a new one and redo the absolute worst pictures. But until that happens you’ll have to make do with this. At least you can see what it is.

My source of inspiration for this piece was the manga/anime Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji). Looking at Ciel Phantomhive and his demon butler kind of makes me wish I was a man so that I could wear all of those lovely clothes.
The hell with it, I thought to myself. I am gonna make this, and I am gonna wear it. Androgynous clothes for the win!
This shirt is made from a lovely grey cotton fabric, just thick enough for the collar to stand on its own and the pleats to stay neatly in place. The front buttons are hidden for a more well-dressed look. The fitting of the shirt is quite loose to not accentuate any female curves. To top it off, I added the black silk ribbon as a tie. It goes well together with this vest.
