Mosaic Art Silk Shirt
After several nights and weekends working on the detail of this shirt, which I constructed of remnants of silk fabric I got at a local fabric store, I got to enjoy this shirt only for a short while.

I had not realized that some of the fabrics were defective in manufacture and that was why they ended up in the remnants room at the fabric store.

One of the pieces of fabric started to tear at the waist of the shirt. For this photo, I had to tuck the shirt into the pants more deeply than normal. As I wore it like this for only this photo shoot, it was okay to be uncomfortable for the small ammount of time; and since this is private, I had no one looking closely and noticing the tears on the right hand side of the shirt.
