Military Shirt for Herschel


For Herschel's birthday gift I made him a shirt with some really great military details: pleated chest pockets, epaulettes, and (my favorite bit) a hidden belly welt pocket that is long enough to conceal a knife. 

I used a pale grey heavy weight cotton, then dyed it with a little bit of black to get a dark grey wash that looks like something our good friend John Rambo would have liked to wear.

the waist pocket is cool & interesting. maybe a phone would work too....rather than a knife. glad he got a haircut.

Was the pattern self drafted or did you purchase one? If purchased, could you share what one? Thanks.
